Customer Question

Customer: Our car needs to be moved for street cleaning. Car is dead and hood won't open. We are trying to pull cable from inside driver's side no luck.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Battery needs to be charged. Hood will not open. 2005 MDX
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Acura Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Can't really wait, street cleaners will come and give us a ticket.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
