My wife and I each have our own car and we have a “beater” car. I drive the beater in the winter as it’s a 4x4 and my Mustang GT is not a good winter car.
The beater is a 2003 Suzuki Vitara with a little over 100K. The body is banged up from a snow plow hitting it, the interior is rough. But the engine runs great and I expect to get another 100K out of it.
Water got into the sealed lens of the left tail light, and the socket for the tail/brake light got corroded. Thus, the light doesn’t work.
I tried cleaning out the corrosion and such to no avail. This will have to be repaired by rewiring a new socket onto the wires.
It’s not something I’d feel comfortable doing myself. Any idea what this could cost? I’d rather take it to a Joe Mechanic at a corner garage than get F**cked like the only woman on a pirate ship by going to a dealer.
