Last week I had 2 vehicles go down with starting problems. Check out the difference: 1. My Audi Q7 developed a starting problem where occasionally it would not start for 45 minutes, then it would start. It went to the service shop, and it took 6 days of troubleshooting to find a bad sensor. Just got it back today. About $300 total bill. 2. My Trabant's starter died on Friday. Saturday I went to a local junkyard and got a working used starter for about $23. Replaced it myself in less than 30 minutes. BIG difference!
