Default good afternoon or?

Bug update! Hold on tight! The alternator is $500! I almost fainted when I heard this plus it won't be ready until late tomorrow or the next day! I am just glad I haven't sold my other car yet. The good news? I don't have to pay for it......but still I am upset...

So I sat on my lanai this morning and tanned with the dog next to me....what else can I do? Bummer

YIKES! Car dealers are an independent bunch aren't they?

At least you have sun and warmth to tan in. Think how this would have played out had you been up north. Tanning is not an option at this time of year. Enjoy the relaxation.

Five hundred bucks for an ALTERNATOR ! ! ! ! ! Good Gawd almighty ! ! ! !

I've got a boat with twin engines and alternators for this (they must be marine certified, i.e. explosion-proof) are not that much for two of them.

The dealer is ripping off VW for the warranty work. No other explanation. GEEEEEEZZ ! !

Regards,
Thomas

No we called a regular auto parts store too just to confirm this price. Thats the price of this type of alternator! There are no rebuild ones around since the car is so new. We did confirm the price I guess this means I have to get added warranty insurance since the parts seem to be so expensive!

Thanks Tweety I did enjoy the sun today

Good grief! on a new car! perhaps the reason it's yellow is that it's a lemon! Sorry, couldn't resist that one! I have a rusty, 14 yr. old Toyota in my driveway that I'm selling to pay the vet's bill. It runs great, even when it's -35!! Interested?
