The car fun continues!

So today I take someone I work with to the local garage to pickup his car that had some work done. I start my car, back out of the spot, shift to drive, start on my way. I hear this strange noise, almost sounds like something dragging underneath. I stop, and the noise stops. I continue on my way, and a few minutes later, the noise starts up again. Then it stops. I get to the garage, have the guy give it a quick look. No problems. I drop off my buddy, start on my way, and it starts again. I turn around, go back to the garage, he looks and it's the cooling fan. He calls a parts place and it turns out that the fan unit is one unit with 2 fans and runs about $600. O_o That's a wonderful surprise today... It's the first real mechanical issue I've had with the car and I have over 89k miles on it, so that's not too bad I guess....

I was wondering if I could get away with that... I should ask the mechanic what he thinks. Doubtful though I would guess...

And I've been trying to talk the wife into letting me trade it in for a new Grand Prix GTP with Comp-G package... I guess I should have done that a few weeks ago.
