Brilliant post and great topic. I recently had my 2001 Passport with 50k on it in the shop for an oil change. It was making an odd noise, so I asked them to check it out. $270 later, the problem wasn't fixed (wasted Satuday). Furthermore, they told me that it was the transmission. Needless to say, I wasn't happy. I took it to the Honda dealership (Jeff Wyler in Florence, KY) and they diagnosed the problem for free. It was related to my catalytic converter theft at work. It was building up pressure and rubbing against my floorboard.

My experience tends to think that diagnosing problems in car repair isn't a science, but I checked three repairs on this site, they all were in line with my service costs. Know if you're getting the screw.

Great post,


Dancing Creek Farm is a wonderful place to board a dog when you have to be away. Tamara trteas our English Setter, Sadie, the same way she trteas her own dogs, and we can go out of town with full confidence that Sadie is being cared for the same way we care for her.Until we found Tamara we boarded Sadie at the vet’s. After the first time boarding her with the vet, not only did she not want to go back when we left town, she still has trouble getting herself out of the car when we have to go to get check-ups and shots. The people at the vet are excellent and the boarding is acceptable, but with the choice of leaving her there, where she stays most of the time in a crate or leaving her with Tamara where she can run with other dogs and enjoy the air-conditioned dog house (with TV and futon), there is no question which we choose.We call the kennel “doggie camp,” and Sadie gets all excited when we head up the road to Tamara’s house. And when she sees Tamara, it is all we can do to hold her on the leash. This is truly a wonderful place to board dogs at the same rate our vet charges. Tamara’s love for animals and her concern for the welfare of her boarders is wonderful. It’s a great facility run by a great animal lover. We greatly appreciate the services she offers.
