Save Mari's Reddy

Hi, this is Mari. I'm still waiting for my Reddy to be repaired at VW Santa Monica. It's been more than 23 days since I brought the car into service. Although they adjusted the repair price a little lower, it's still very expensive to fix my beloved car. If you're willing to help, I'll appreciate your donations. I'll make sure you'll get a satisfying thank you gift from me afterward. Thanks for your help!! Mari

Thank you so much for your kind support. I repaired Reddy’s Timing Belt and Brake Booster.
Reddy came home with me and Yuuki safely today after nearly 2 months of captivity at the dealer. 
It costed total $3885.12 
Japanese Yen is very weak right now, so it costed 497.977 In Japanese Yen
It was painfully expensive but your help really meant a lot to me. Thank you so much!!
円安なので、日本円にして50万円ほど修理にかかってしまいましたが、本日ようやく愛車Reddyが帰って来ました。
皆さんの心優しいご協力に心から感謝いたします。

While I was so happy to drive Reddy the next day, the ABS light came on and it stayed on.
I just contacted VW Santa Monica if I need to worry about that but no reply back.
I only fixed 2 crucial parts so me and Yuuki's lives will be safer. So I knew Reddy wouldn't be fully perfect. 
BUT I believed that repairing the brake booster would make things better . . . .
so I'm disappointed after paying such an expensive fee.
I'll let you more later. 
In the meantime, thanks again for your continues support.
