I have horrible luck with cars. 99% of the time if my car needs to be repaired it will cost more than $800.00. My newest car (Legolas the Nissan) had a check engine light come on. This was the first time I've had to bring Legolas to a mechanic since I purchased the car last spring. I was preparing myself for a hefty bill and eating soup every meal for a month. Luckily it was under $300.00. I was thrilled!
I don't want to jinx myself so I'm knocking on internet wood here but it's nice to not want to cry when you pickup your car from the mechanic.
And if you haven't guessed I do name my cars and other inanimate objects. Legolas is obviously green.
