1. Wow, good thing you ran into your coworker before you spent the $450! I never would have though to check on recalls- what a great tip.

  2. Wow! Talk about good timing, Aldo! So happy for you that it all worked out. I love good news stories like this. Hope you had a good holiday too!

  3. And it’s best to check these things ASAP. One time my friend broke a recalled ball joint in a parking lot. Even though it was recalled he still had to pay the expensive tow. Front ball joint breaks = car falls on its face. It’s funny looking/terrible.

  4. Thank goodness you made it just in time! It is amazing how many warranty issues happen and we have no idea about them. I had a similar issue with my car where it was giving me problems, I took it in and fortunately the problem (which would have cost over $1,000 to fix) was a warranty issue, so I didn’t have to pay.

  5. My husband’s Prius broke down one day when we were on our way out of town. Thankfully, we had it towed to a dealership where they let us know there was a recall and fixed the faulty part. I was worried it would end up costing a fortune!

  6. It is a good thing that you found about the paint issue, most people won’t even know that it was associated with a recall. It was way too early for a 2007 to loose paint. Good thing you got that baby painted by the dealer!

  7. That is crazy that you saved $450 getting your car painted. Isn’t car paint a long and expensive process? I think that is why my parents never paint any of their cars when they get dings and scratches in them.

  8. That’s pretty great that you were able to find out your car was covered by the recall. Warranties always seem to expire right before your vehicle or appliance breaks down, don’t they? I’m glad that everything was able to work out so that your car was able to get repainted in time. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Like you, I find that the paint on the roof of my car is fading as well. But my car is older so I think that it’s normal that this is happening. It’s good to know about the process of getting your car re-painted. I’ll look into the paint warranty of my car, like you suggested. Thanks for sharing!
