So my car has been in the shop for a couple of days and I got it back today. Yay!
Anyone who has ridden with me in the past few years has been alarmed at the growing number of warning lights active on my dashboard. I’ve taken the car in for check-ups and tune-ups and had things fixed, but the lights remained merry and bright.
So we finally bit the bullet and took it to Merritt Auto Service & Tire Service in Georgetown, Indiana. Mr. Merritt has been fixing our cars for us for many years. I’ve been taking the car to a local place — a very good local place — but Charlie likes Merritt, so we took the car there.
Cost. A. Bundle. Not an unreasonable amount, since a lot needed to be done. The lights were on because two sensors were broken and both hub assemblies needed to be replaced. Does that make any sense? Anyway, they did what they did, gave it a tune-up and an oil change, replaced the front brakes, and it runs like a dream.
My only complaint is that my jolly little lights are now gone. In my head, I know this is A Good Thing, but I rather miss them.
I’ll get over it.
