Another Jetta Day

Good Deed for the Day:
I traded cars with my daughter this morning to get the oil changed in the Jetta and pick up new 2010 tabs - all on the way into work.
Eight hours later, I got into the car to drive home and the engine light was ON. This should not be happening! We just had the timing belt and engine overhauled in March.I stopped at Goodyear on the way home to make sure there wasn't a problem (after all, I had just had the oil changed, filter and liquids checked that morning).
After a computer diagnostic test (over $100 just for the analysis) they found a couple problems - leak in the fuel line to repair and something about the air flow into the engine (can you tell I am not a car person). They have to get parts, so I am back to car pooling with family members for a few days.
Hers's a photo of the 'little beast' after it's first visit to Goodyear today.
What is it about me and this car?

the Jetta should have stayed in CA!!

Lol, I agree with Liz. I think it's a sign that you're being far too nice to this car.

Melissa said...

I'll save my comments for in person; but let's just say I think you've been nice long enough!

Liz&Meg said...

Ha I'm surprised you didn't mention the whole irony of the day with my car being towed away and everything. But luckily, everything is alright! :)

I have gotten quite a few comments on this post. I was going to add your 'tow' information, but I just thought it would be a bit much.
Love, Mom
