And ... The Anti-lock brake control module is beginning to fail. That will be another $985.00.
It doesn't affect the car's driveability and it is intermittent at this time.

$926... That's about what my root canal and crown cost me ! :p
I'm the type of the person who wouldn't bother to replace the module, after all, when i grew up, only luxury cars had anti-lock bakes. While nice, they're something i certainly can do just fine without
OH, I'll leave the module alone until I get the money to fix it. It doesn't bother me as I usually don't get on the brakes hard enough for anti-lock. I'm also used to cars without it.

The most annoying thing will be living with the

*BEEP*BEEP*BEEP*
(Luckily this only occurs once)

and the

STOP

FAULT

SERVICE

that repeats on the display panel in angry red letters for ten minutes plus.

So long as you're safe, that's the main thing. That has been a fantastic car for you and even though these expenses are not easy to manage right now it is well worth keeping it in good running order.
