Hey guys. I'm a total lurker, so please excuse my lack of posts.
My Wife has an 05 LGT wagon. On her way back to Philadelphia from the family vacation home in Woodstock, NY her car "broke down". We had it towed to Colonial Subaru in Kingston. They called her this morning with the news that the turbo failed and blew debris into the oil. Long story short, new turbo and short block, $5700. Any advice? The car is there, but I obviously don't know the dealership and would rather get it to a solid dude.
Situation: My wife is 8 months pregnant, has my 4.5 year old with her and is staying there until things get into play. I am currently in the Bahamas until Friday for work. This is a terrible feeling for me, as I'm so far away and she is beside herself between the lack of car, hormones, and the $$$ cost and just called me in tears.
Any help would be very, very much appreciated. The wifi here is super dodgy and I am about to break internet rule #1 and toss my cell number up here. Please post here or text me if you have any recommendations. I have read many posts and I have total faith that I'm dealing with serious heads here. I'll be checking back all day. Many thanks, guys.
