My life has been positively impacted by my dad getting a “smart phone”.
I get texts like these.
And picture messages like this.
What are your Friday night plans?
It’s a Friday treat.
Good to know they have been broken.
(Because you all care…)
After not hearing from the dealership at all yesterday, I gave them a call at 3:45 pm. The receptionist told me it was being worked on. I got a little heated because they were supposed to have called before starting any work and was givin’ her some ‘tude when she transferred me to the mechanic. He told me no work was started and that they were waiting on prices from CarMax’s warrany company, MaxCare (see what they did there?).
So I got to keep the Versa overnight. Sweet.
Just got a call letting me know that:
- Seat cable for the passenger seat was broken, preventing it from sliding up and down. Covered and replaced.
- Sway bars, whatever they are, were broken or something. Covered and replaced.
- Washer fluid tank nozzle was broken causing half of my fluid to go to waste every time I washed the windshield, but that is not covered so not being fixed. I figured out that I could buy 51.6 jugs of washer fluid for the price that they wanted to replace it. Not worth it.
- The fender liner was cracked and hanging down. Not covered. Not being fixed. Whatevs.
- Brakes, they say, are down to 1 mm and are close to being metal-on-metal. Rock on. Don’t fix them. My dad can do it for a fraction of the cost.
- The front springs were corroded and will be replaced via a recall campaign. (I found out that these were the things causing an awful grinding/scraping sound every time I went over bumps.)
Unfortunately, the 2 most annoying issues I brought it in for—a squeaky fan and my keyless entry working sometimes but calling in sick other times—weren’t happening (OF COURSE!) so they couldn’t diagnose or repair.
Ah, the life of a car owner is nothing short of annoying. But I’m excited to get my little Saaby back.
The dress I’m wearing from LOFT is an XS.

Um, that “stretch” is essentially the whole highway.
