And Christmas was little merrier…

Finally got caught up on maintenance for the wife’s Jetta.  New wheel bearings in the front and replacement trunk latch in the rear.  $922!  Yikes, I forgot how expensive VWs are to keep.  Thankfully, we’re still under extended 3rd party warranty.  So the total damage out of pocket was a far more palatable $100.

Normally, I equate extended warranties to buying air.  But, in this case the expensive warranty we opted for on the Jetta is actually earning its keep.  I think we passed the total cost of the warranty a few repair sessions ago.
