Car troubles, sort of.

My car is in the garage again because of the intermittent squeak from the front wheel going on since June, blamed 1st on dust/dirt, then worn discs I said well why is the squeak one side only, stuck break calliper. Today they rang to say they are replacing the drive shaft to the front wheels because its worn, they rang later to say they are also replacing the main drive shaft to rear wheels, because of a worn joint.

All this is covered under warranty because it otherwise sounds expensive, so my only cost is time going to the the garage, the parts are not in stock so on order and I get to keep my brand new top spec Freelander2 courtesy car for a few days, which is dangerously fast for a diesel, pity its automatic, I don't like automatics.


  1. My car's in for its first major service and MOT next week. No nice courtesy car though...

  2. And don't forget your pollen filter that lasts 1 year before leaking.

    Courtesy car are essential and part of the deal for me since the garage is 30 minutes away each way, and buses don't run round here.

  3. Ah well, I've got them to collect the car and drop it back off again to my work address... Hence why I don't need a courtesy car. :)

    And nope, I'll not be forgetting the pollen filter.

  4. The squeek is fixed...hurrah, its only taken since June, the mechanic had to do 30 miles in my car, before it started squeeking for him to identify it.
