After the 'little glitch' with the car the other day, I'm going to bring it in to the dealer's after work. Fortunately the car is still under warranty (wow, I thought they weren't supposed to start developing problems until the day after the warranty expires...). The only down side is that i'll probably be without a car until tomorrow afternoon (Saturday). It really puts a crimp into weekend plans. 

I hope they're able to find something and that it's minor and can be fixed easily.

UPDATE:  I am back from the car dealership...with the car. Which hasn't been fixed yet. Why you may ask? Good question. I often ask myself that...why would I come back from the car dealsership without actually having them fix the car. Ranks right up there with questions which have the answer, 42.

Well...remember yesterday when I called the dealership and a nice girl said to I could bring the car in today and make an appointment for tomorrow? It seems she has no idea what she was talking about. They only do oil changes and quick things tomorrow. On Saturdays it seems they only run on half staff. Sooo, I have to come back on Monday and try to drive the car only short distances tomorrow, if I have to. Argh...

Fingers crossed. I hate car trouble!

Thanks. You can't live without them...but when they develop problems...

Having a car is so convenient. It takes me 1 1/2 to get to work by public transit; only half an hour by car. Saves me 2 hours a day!

I'm going to bring it in to the dealer's after work.

That's reassuring.

I hope they find out what's wrong with it.

Oh, I hope, I hope!

You've got what we call a Friday afternoon special, which being translated means the builders were in a hurry to clock off for the weekend, I believe the Americans call it a lemon. The best of luck with fixing things, I hope you don't get the answer Beth got when she took her car in just before her holiday.
Quote The exhaust is going but we can't fix it until it stops working completely Unquote. It's a crime to drive a car with out a working exhaust in this country, IIRC.

I hope I don't get that answer.

That one is by sallymm. She's very good at making wonderful-looking and creative icons.

But at least they work Saturdays there and you get it for part of the weekend!

Sigh...unfortunately there's another story. I just updated the post.

Bum. I hope you don't have to wait ages for a part like I did last summer. If they say that, ask for a second-hand one.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind.
