So I guess we've reached the point in our car's life where it just falls apart? In the last 3 weeks we've had to get the mass air flow sensor replaced twice. Today, driving home from the mechanic that just replaced the sensor again, the car sounded weirdly loud. The muffler had detached from... whatever holds mufflers onto cars. Completely coincidentally and not related to the mechanic fixing the damn sensor. WTF, car. We still have a couple of years left on the loan, so I think we're stuck with it until something really catastrophic breaks, but I am now seeing some of the wisdom of possibly leasing in the future. Even though leasing seems like a scam and I'd prefer to own a car at the end of making payments for 5 years.

The Salem High School has an auto shop that will do fixes for just parts when they can.
You are stuck to their timetable through.

I hope the sensor replacement in such a short time was covered by a warranty. :)

Good luck.

Good to know, thanks! We only have one car and Drew needs it to get to work every day, so we many never be able to explore that, but it's always good to have the option. It was covered by the warranty, so it was really just the inconvenience of me giving up my morning waiting for a car repair. But I found a cute coffee shop in Danvers to wait in, so it wasn't a total loss.
