After 12 days apart, I was reunited with my car at around 7:30 AM CST this morning. Looks good as new.
It would have been Monday but there was an issue with the right rear tire so that had to be replaced. They could have thrown any old tire on it and gotten it back same day but they actually took the time to order in a matching tire to the same tires that are already on it so that was some solid customer service.
I was a little annoyed at the outset when I was called to tell them they’d have to keep it awhile longer but it actually worked out to my benefit – my brother-in-law was released from jail in a town not too far from here (free man, it’s about time!) so I was able to take the rental and go get him as opposed to racking up miles on my car. As the rental was unlimited miles, there was no out-of-pocket overage.
Alas, I’m breathing a sigh of relief. That’s over and I hope that’s the last of this. With me hopefully getting out of DFW(TF) soon, this insane traffic hopefully will be a thing of the past. Man do I hate it.
Oh, and it feels really nice to be shifting gears again. I missed that part of driving, even in heavy traffic. 😉
