Remember when this happened?

I thought I dodged the bullet, it only cost me the price of a car wash and carpet shampoo.

But hold on there boy.....

Suddenly my gear shift would not go out of Park unless I warmed the car up. Not putting two and two together, I took it to Lexus to find out what was wrong.

Rick (from Lexus): "We took the whole gearshift box apart and my guy says it looks like someone got soda down in there."

Me: Oh my gracious. I spilled 88 ounces of soda in my car, I bet that's when it happened.

Rick: Yup, that would do it.

Me: How much is that going to cost me?

Rick: $260 to replace the gear shift mechanism

Me: What happens if we don't replace it?

Rick: Eventually, you won't be able to drive the car.

Me: Yikes. I guess there will be no more drinking soda in the car.


Bummer, well it's better than finding out one day before work that you cannot drive it at all :-)
