A Ransom Wednesday Conversation Starter

Asking this question with no hint that it is relevant to anything going on in my life today whatsoever...what's the most expensive car repair you've ever had to pay for?

I'll sit back and glower at the replies. (For no reason, really.)

Don't remember, because the Wife deals with it. It was the last car, though, with a series of #$300 here, $500 there, and after a while, we were spending more on repairs than maintenance. Oh, the worst had to be when it'd stop running, and they had to replace some driving column that cost north of $1000 last year, which was the last straw.

New transmission in my Gremlin back in the 80s.

It must have been the transmission in the 1982 AMC Concord. Don't remember the exact cost. Everything else my husband does so we only have to pay for parts.

Transmission died in a still-fairly-new-but-out-of-warranty Ford.

$3000 plus for a rebuilt transmission, and over a week without a car. (The transmission died a half-hour south of where I live and it was a nightmare finding a ride home - it was a Saturday - and then a ride back to the place where I had it towed to be fixed.)

If the car were a few years older I would have abandoned it and tried to get a new one (well, new-used) quickly, but it still seemed prudent to replace the transmission.
