Anyway, we are at our first PCS so this AAFES auto repair is making me a little nervous! First off, my car wasn't starting on the first time....so they hooked it up to that little machine (whatever it's called) and then told me it was the spark plugs. They are the one's that said it was the plugs and wire.
I wish AAFES had some kind of gaurentee but I guess that's too perfect of a world and well, you just don't get that in the army!
So after 320$ for parts and labor, my car still has the issue. I guess it's frustrating b/c I know my husband could do it and we should have thought of that earlier but too late now!
THanks for the info! Familiar with anyone is Western Germany?
Well I don't know enough about what's going on with your car to tell you what is wrong with it, and I understand that you can't provide me with more info than you have, so...
My first suggestion is to stay as far away from AAFES as you possibly can. Use them for the cheap gas and keep driving. The last person I knew who was at Ramstein left a few months ago and I don't know anybody at Baumholder (I was Air Force), but I do have some advice. Go to Ramstein and find the Auto Hobby Shop, now probably called the Auto Skills Center. They should be much better able to help you with your car as most of the guys doing customer work will be Americans with experience on American cars.
I know that's not great advice but it's the best I have for you today. Good luck and let us know how it works out.
