Man, I get what you are saying, but really, statistically, it's just a simple coincident. And to be honest with you, you probably had been lucky that it broke there instead of on the road. The thing is, shifter cable bushing is not something that you can break easily by trying, so they probably didn't break it, it just broke at that time.I totally get that it’s a wear and tear item and would have likely needed to be replaced soon. Just don’t understand how I can park the car with no issues, and the person driving it 100 yards to the garage manages to break it. If I didn’t take it for the oil change that day and let them drive it, my car would in all likelihood still be working.
Having said that though, $430 for repair is a bit much. The bushing is like $20-30? And it's not four hour job.
