Update on the car…

I took it in to a place recommended by my ex, and just asked them to replace the serpentine belt. I didn't mention the supposed "leaks", figuring I'd just wait and see what they told me. After they replaced the belt, I asked, "You didn't find anything else wrong, did you?" The guy said, "No, but that belt was really on its way out." "Ok... because Firestone tried to tell me that I needed $900 in repairs, and I didn't think that made sense." *strange look from the mechanic* "Yeah, they claimed that I was leaking power steering fluid, and that there was a problem with the steering rack, despite the fact that I've had no trouble with the steering." "Nope, we didn't see any leaks at all... and the guy who worked on your car is very thorough. Plus, you would've had to add steering fluid if that were the case." "That's what I thought." So, it's official: Firestone is the devil.
