Soldier needs to fix his car
Organized by: Myles Thompson
Look, I don't have anywhere else to go, I've looked at getting a loan and it's gotten denied. So I figured this is worth a shot. I bought a 2008 Mazdaspeed 3 from an older guy with only 22000 miles on it and maintained it perfectly with all the services recomended and then some. Some of the 2008's came out with defective engines that throw rods. I was on my way back from from Montana seeing my family on leave, as I was driving between Buffalo Wyoming and Shawnee my engine threw a rod in the middle of nowhere. There wasn't a house around, luckily I had service to get ahold of a tow truck service to get it to Buffalo where it sat while I rented a car to get back to base so I wasn't marked AWOL. My uncle picked it up from Montana and is allowing me to store it in Yakima WA. the engine had 62000 miles on it, I called Mazda and they said they wouldn't have a part in it. I'm not really expecting much out of this but at this point I'm willing to give it a shot.
