Thank you, Foreign Aid.

Yesterday was a wonderful day. After suffering for a year without air conditioning in my car, I finally got it fixed. I have been dreading the cost of AC repair, as I was once quoted $700 for a new AC compressor. UGH! Can you see why I stuck it out and waited a whole year? I probably would have waited even longer, except:

a) I am off of work this week, leaving me some free time to get some much needed things done.


b) I really don't want to make my newborn baby suffer the stifling heat of my car in mid-July and August.

So, I called around and ended up taking my little beetle to Foreign Aid in Orem. I dropped it off at about 9:30 in the morning, and around noon they called me to give me the news. Apparently, the compressor was just all full of gunk and needed to be cleaned out and oiled. Also, I had blown a little fuse.

Total cost of parts/labor: $130.

I cannot tell you how happy I was! That is a seriously cheap car repair! Plus, it was ready for me to pick up right away. SO FAST!

The best part is, when I went to pick it up and pay for the repair, they ended up only charging me $95! I even pointed it out to them that they had told me a higher price on the phone, and they had indeed made an error by charging me lower. However, they didn't correct it, and let me have it at the lower price. Wow!

Anyway, I would highly recommend them, and if I need more repairs in the future I will definitely go to them. Happy day! I don't have to sweat my guts out any more!!!

I'm so happy for you. I know how much that money can mean. What a great place, I wish they had one here.
