More car troubles

The “positive, cup half-full” me is on the brink today. Last night I went for a really nice meal on the southbank at Strada, which gave the car a run out and charged the batteries more since they had depleted last week. Woke up this morning feeling good, got in the car and BOOM! Cars broken again…

No matter how much I love life and have this get up and go attitude, a new car breaking 4 times in 2 months, one time for 3 weeks long and today with the same problem as twice before is testing. The knock-on of this is I couldn’t get to work, had to speak to Motability and the garage throughout the day. They originally asked me to get in the car to talk me through fixing it. Check this out – “locate bracket x and then using 2 10mm spanners loosen them slightly. Excuse me! Why would I own 1 let alone 2 bloody 10mm spanners?

The MD really doesn’t seem to want to talk to me since they invoiced for the big handover. Will be 5-6 years before I’d be due a new one so I’m low down on any priority lists despite the fact I’ve paid for a new car and it is under warranty. I need Motability to enforce the contract as they in theory are the customer of the garage.

So we’ll see if/when it arrives back and how long it works for. Till then its back to bus roulette and limited excursions away from my hood. At least the weathers good, oh hang on that’s about as cheery as the car situation… well one positive is curry for dinner and beyonce & shakira on music tv – no garage can take that from me right 😉 working out logistics to get home for the weekend now as its my step dads birthday and a family meal. Answers on a postcard…
