You know how you see all those posts about companies and people doing good things out of kindness? Well, I never thought it would happen to me, but today it did. I took my car into the Mini dealership to get new brakes. Since I just moved a week ago, this was really terrible timing for me financially as this was going to be about $600. I called to check on my car and found out that they had noticed a sound coming from the engine (which I had also noticed just two days ago but was trying to ignore). Turns out my timing belt had become stretched and I was soon to have a “catastrophic engine failure” unless I was able to pay for this additional repair of $1,700. Knowing of my very recent move and how bad the timing of this was, the dealership paid for the engine repair in full out of goodwill. I can’t even describe my emotions and am so grateful to the service guys at Mini. If you are looking for a new car, I can’t recommend anything more than a MINI!
