CV Joint @ 05:06 pm

Firestone seems to think my CV Joint is fried. I suppose that makes sense considering the sound it was making. They didn't make it sound life-threatening. I'm probably going to take my car in for quite a bit of service when I move home. Guy said it should be about $200 - $220 to have the joing replaced. Add another $300 for whatever other work I'm sure they will find when I take it back. I'm guessing around $500 to get my car in tip-top shape.

CV joint

Sounds like a lie to me! the clicking/funky noise is perfectly natural, shopping carts aren't ment to go over 55.

Is that somehow related to the 600 lbs. you had in the back of your car yesterday?

Be careful, remember when mine went on the Galant, I let it go so long I had to get the axels replaced as well.

Dude, get a second opinion on the price.
Firestone (at least around me) isn't the most honest company to have check out your car.
A friend of mine paid them to replace a part of his car that he later found out didn't even exist.
Just a word of warning.
Perhaps they're better around you...

So far it's been to two places, now they're telling me it's the transmission. So we'll see what the transmission place says.
