    Appreciate it! Car broke down outside of Cincinnati (clutch pack, could be entire transmission, and it's a hybrid). Had to get a tow truck to get car to only mechanic open, then had to get an Uber to Cincinnati airport to get rental car, then have to get it towed back to dealer (70 miles away) to see if they'll honor a bulletin (one step short of a recall). But, if you're ever around Cleves Ohio, I absolutely cannot recommened NK&L Auto enough! They were legit the nicest people ever (bonus point, they have a Great Dane!)
