Loud noise on Yukon = Bad

So about 2 weeks ago I was on my way to Dallas when my Yukon started making this funky noise. It sounded like something just grinding as I drove. Not good. We went to get whatever it was fixed. Honestly I can't even remember what it was exactly, other than something was wobbly, it was a good thing I got home ok and it cost $500 to fix. Yuck. We were saving money to get a tune up before we go to Utah this summer. I guess we better start saving again. lol

Thankfully we knew a great, honest repair shop here in town because we take our cars there when it's time for an oil change. But sometimes that is not the case. That's why repairpal.com is a great site. That site gives you independent and unbiased repair estimates, user ratings and reviews, plus advice you can't get anywhere else. Say your Acura Integra starts giving you trouble while you're traveling thru Houston. Houston is ginormous. How are you going to know a place you can trust to take your car? Not all repair shops are equal. You can go to RepairPal.com and look for a Houston Auto Repair and even search your make of car for familiar problems. You can find a shop, with real customer ratings and reviews. It's not paid advertising, just honest opinions from people who have been in your position. You can even get an estimate of what your repair should cost so a repair shop can't try to screw you. Awesome! And once you've experienced a repair shop you can rate them on RepairPal.com as well. It's a definite win-win!!
