Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

Do you need me to assist you with a vehicle concern?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It turned out that the shift cable had stretched and got the park/neutral safety switch out of sync, i.e., the car thought it was in gear and wouldn't start....with towing gonna cost around $350 ....
