I brought the car in this morning. The service person, Debbie,  who took it was very helpful and friendly. I left the car with them and they hope to get it fixed by this afternoon, depending on what's wrong with it, of course.

UPDATE:  Well, I picked up the car again. They updated the software on the car and told me to keep an eye on it. hmm. Since it was still under warranty, it didn't cost anything. Unfortunately I needed both a front and rear alignment done and an oil change so that did cost. * sigh *

That wasn't where the car adventure ended though. I drove home. Or rather, I almost got home when I noticed the panel indicator said "CHANGE OIL SOON" Huh? Didn't I just get that done, I asked myself? I checked the readings..."OIL LIFE AT 0%"....now that CAN'T BE RIGHT!!! Even before the oil change it was still over 80%. Called the dealer right away (they close at 6pm and it was 5:45pm). They said to BRING IT BACK IN!!! Argh...I was almost home. * sigh * Turned the car around and went back. It was 6:05pm but they were waiting for me. The service guy tried to reset the readings. Took him several times. Finally it reset. Those stubborn computers. Must be a distant ancestor for Orac... Now I am finally home, several hundred dollars poorer and with a car which hopefully will work now with a new software upgrade...which I'm supposed to keep an eye on.

Hope it's not too pricey! Cars = moneymunchers! My cunning plan was never learn and make other people drive me places. *grin* Good luck!

Hope it is OK now - still with a name like Deborah (even if she does call herself Debbie) you would expect great service!

I hope it's nothing too bad.

awwwww....poor kalinda! looks like servie managed to sabotage the computer system of your car!

don't you worry though!! i know a nice computer techie named kerr avon who will fix it pronto...

just as soon as he can get out of his current fix that is...i will talk to cally and see when he could personally visit you and fix your car.

(i will have to ask cally if he is free to take a look at my computer as well!!)

You're having computer problems?

it has been acting up now and then...sometimes i can access the internet and sometimes not. plus i have some hard drive issues i must deal with..

i might get a new hard drive anyway and see if that will help. otherwise i will have to call my cable company and see if someone can come out and check.

that's why you haven't heard from me in some time...had to play catch up on the story though...

are there any plans to kill off sester and/or vanora though? it seems that they are planning to escape the ship...

Internet and computer problems can be very irritating and frustrating. Just like care troubles. Hope yours get sorted out.

For your last question, read today's chapter post. Just put it up a few minutes ago.
