RE: AMAZING STORY: Misdiagnosis!
Great ending to a scary story. I have had a couple of the same type of stories but not with as high possible losses. I have been finding for the past five years or so, most of the dealers and indies are just plug and pray fixing cars and not doing actual diagnostic troubleshooting (want to buy a purfectly good used heater blower that was not the problem?).
Experience is the key. My dealer in Lexington has several very good guys and if I get them I am in luck, otherwise, plug and pray. Same with the indies. My current guy, Stuttgart Motors is very good and won't even try to fix something unless it really really needs it.
Great lesson for that ol second opinion.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
