We Need A New Plan
As you all know, the Focus hates us. I've been complaining for a while and well I'm still at it. Den has been driving the Kia for a few weeks and its not working out so well. The cost for gas is killing us. He is spending about $60 a week. I'm not one to procrastinate about anything. Being an A personality, I pretty ridged in my schedules and thinking but I let this problem slide. With DJ starting high school and Anna moving to EIU, we haven't done a lot with the focus.
So far we have dumped $1300(ish) into that lovely piece of machinery. Like I said before we have had it to transmission shops, reputable and not so reputable mechanics, and the Ford dealer. No one knows what it is. So Den has been pulling it apart bit by bit trying to trace it down. The problem is most of the things that he thinks might be it are all Ford parts. Of course they are and they cost three times as much as NAPA parts. He has been trying to get to the junk yard but they close before he can get there. Like we should expect anything different!
So we are back to dumping more money in it but it should be cheaper in the long run than paying for all this gas or getting a new car. So Den has a project car, I think thought that he was hoping for a Trans Am for a project not a sweet ride like a Focus.
Thanks for stopping by,
