Customer Question

I hit a tire tread yesterday on the interstate. The ABS light is on, the 4WD light is on. Can I still drive the car? How bad is it?
JA: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?
Customer: What does that Icon look like? There is one with a car look light is it on an incline on, a plane engine )double) light on, a car with curvy lines under it
JA: What is the model/year of your Kia?
Customer: 2013 kia sportage with 29,000 miles
JA: Are you fixing your Sportage yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Since I hit the tire tread in the road, I have called my insurance company to go to a certified garage. However, I have a $750 deductible and I wanted to have an idea on how much it would cost to fix it.
JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.
Customer: ok. how do I do that
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
