I'm taking Eve into the shop today because she is making a funny noise. I'm sure the service guy gets a headache when he talks to me, because I always have these weird descriptions of my complaints. This time it's that the car "sounds like a truck." It's tire noise, not engine noise, if that helps. Surely he knows what this means?
I'm trying to think positively: it's a problem that can be solved by rotating the tires (which I need to do anyway) and doesn't involve spending hundreds of dollars on something like, say, new wheel bearings.
I love Eve and she is a fine little car, but we're approaching the point where I may have to start putting some money into her. Meaning, she's almost paid off and closing in on 80,000 miles. I don't mind spending a little money, really I don't. I just don't want to start right now.
If you have any good thoughts to spare, please send them her way! And maybe a few for the service guy, too.
