We have a 97 Accent GT that is my fiancee's car and right now I want to drive that damn thing into a wall and collect all $500 insurnace dollars I can get. The car has been taken care of OK, I don't drive it much and the little lady isn't really car smart so some thing have gone longer than they should but overall it's been well cared for. About a month and a half ago I had $1400 worth of work done to make it run right again, full tune up/new IM gasket/new flex pipe(old one cracked)/new 02 sensor and some rear suspension pin or something. No more than a week or two later she starts complaining that the front brakes are making a nasty noise. After a couple failed attempts to synch our schedules and get the car in, we dropped it off last night. I had a wonderfull conversation with the tech this morning and found out I need about $900 worth of calipers rotors and bearings with about $300 of that in labor. Thank you Hyundai for using FUCKING CAPTIVE ROTORS. This probably would have been $500 less is Hyundai used the same damn brake technology everybody else has used for the past 25 years. I had almost paid off the credit card from the last repair bill and now another $900. I hate spending money on this car but I only have one more payment and then it's paid off. I really wanted to be able to have a while when we only had one car payment but this damn Accent is making me want to sell it.
