Whoot! Now I can actually DRIVE twenty blocks without having to pull over, turn off the car, then restart it to reset the damn computer codes that absolutely have to go meshuga every few miles. Neither of my magnificent personal mechanics (Yes, they are mine, since I gave birth to them) has been able to pinpoint the problem, and the car has more new electronic parts than a video game system. I have been unable to drive anywhere over 25 miles from home for over two years. Couldn't trust the poor car to make it both ways.
Ever had a car like that? One that played games with you when you were headed somewhere important? One that works perfectly fine until you turn on the radio, heater, or AC? Then it decides to chug, choke, cough, sputter and other wise make you wonder what is wrong with the stupid thing? It was a great car for the first 18 years of its venerable life...but over the past 18 months, it has driven me bonkers.
No, I don't plan to burn it on a funeral pyre...I will keep it in case the newer one decides to need work...at least I will have a spare that way.
So share your car nightmares...I HOPE I'm not the only one out there who has a tricky car...
