Chevrolet Informative - Tired of fixing - 2006 Chevy trailblazer
We are getting tired of fixing my Trailblazer. The first couple of years it was a good vehicle. However, in the past year, the ignition switch went - $300 for that fix. Then the lower tie-rods went - $500 for that one (both went at the same time.) Then the front driver's side wheel bearing went - $330. Now the check engine light came on. (Advance Auto computer check - 4 different possibilities all pertaining to low engine idle.) Turned out to be a dirty throttle body - so far.
In the past year, this has turned my husband into a full time mechanic. He is also slowly building up his tool inventory. It seems no matter what tools he has, every fix he seems to need another tool and he already has quite an inventory. Why do they always have to use parts that use tools that you don't have??? (Besides having stock in the tool companies?) Either they get your money by you taking your vehicle in for repair or they get your money when you buy the tools so you can fix it yourself. One way or the other, they get you.
