First EF Withdrawal For The Year

July 19th, 2017 at 12:33 pm

This year we haven't needed to make a withdrawal from the EF until today. B was on his way out and mentioned that his car was really slow to start and may need a new battery, so he was going to see how the car went today and decide on whether or not to replace the battery.

Well he made it out of the driveway and halfway across the road and then it promptly died! We pushed the car out to a safer spot and called roadside assistance. After all, this is what we pay for Smile.

They came out to our house with a new battery for which we paid $319. Because this month has been crazy with spending and this is technically an emergency, we withdrew it from the EF. Glad that we have the funds available to cover true emergencies like this. I think we have about $2200 cash now so will look at boosting this back up again next year.

    Wow! $319.00 for a battery? Was there any other service performed? I am shocked at this price. My friend has a Dodge Ram and ironically enough, just replaced the battery on Monday. Total cost was $95.00. Is there a price difference due to your location? I am really interested as to why the cost is high from my perspective!!!!

    My DH has a 4WD, so according to the discount auto shop the price for his battery is $249 so I guess we also paid for installation (as roadside assistance installed it).

    Ouch! But that's what the emergency fund is for...helping when you have an emergency. I'm sure you will work to replace the funds as quickly as you can.
