Are you making fun of the size of my automobile?

April 22nd, 2006

So I finally got around to taking my car to the dealer to find out about the violent shaking that happens when I get up around 65 – 70MPH. Here’s the technician’s notes from the bill:

ROAD TEST TO 60 MPH-FRONT END COMPONENTS WORN LOSE, RATTLE, ENGINE KNOCKS, NUMEROUS LEAKS, ETC. RECOMMEND ENGINE $4500.00 TO REPLACE ENGINE.

So, it looks like I’m in the market for a new car. I’m pretty impressed this one lasted as long as it did, it’s 1992 Mercury Sable with 120,200 miles on it.

    That’s kinda sad, why don’t they just say “RECOMMEND SCRAPYARD” 🙂

    Oh well, at least you have a chance to get a nice new car now. If you are really going into a job with lots of urban driving a hybrid might really pay off for you, especially with gas prices as they are.
