Car Problems

So, my car has been in the shop for over a week now.  It wouldn't start a week ago Saturday and then again on Sunday.  The AAA people ( not a reliable group in my opinion ) said there was nothing wrong with the battery or alternator.  I thought it was the battery and was glad it was under warrenty, but no.  So the car was taken to Firestone.  2 days and they could not figure out what was wrong with it.  So then it was towed to a dealership.  A week there and they could not figure out what was wrong with it so even though they had the printout from the AAA people they decided to test the battery on their equipment.  The battery is dead.  It is supposed to have 800 ???units and it has zero.  That's right none.  You see the battery was a AAA battery and is under warranty so they would have to replace it for free.  Hmmmmm interesting how their equipment said it's fine and it's not.  Plus now we have all the added expenses of Firestone and the dealership.  Alan is going after them to make them pay.  They will really wish they'd just replaced the battery after he gets done with them.  He's not the type to let something go.  Especially if it cost him money.
