Default Can't catch a break...

I think my Saab is mad at me. I was looking at Mini Coopers as a possible next car. I know, I am ashamed. Svea (that is her name) was rearended last night. Tonight she had a flat tire. Her roof leaks as well. I think its all her way of saying, 'don't get rid of me!' or 'we will see who laughs last'. Poor girl. I'm sorry.

Mine used to do that too! I would drive one of our other cars and when I went to drive the 9-5 somewhere it would never start! (dead battery every time, but that battery was hit and miss) I think Saab's get jealous.

Thats crazy.. My friends always make fun of my for saying my car knows whats going on!! I have been car shopping for my parents (they need an upgrade real bad haha) and stopped to check out two car lots..

Well after the first time the upper radiator hose blew on the way home, after the second the radiator cracked.

Needless to say, I told them to look on their own for a bit. I cant afford another repair right now

(I hope he cant hear me typing about him right now, hes only 30 or so feet away in the garage )

never had that problem with either the saab or the bmw.. but the Fiat is a jealous Mistress and does not even like being driven by somebody other than me.

A funny story.. friend of mine wanted to drive my 124 spider.. and after consideration.. I lent him the keys and climbed into the passenger seat.. we drove about 10 miles back to his place. The car was pleasant and smooth with absolutely no niggles or any hint of a bad attitude.. Got to his house, shut her down, handed me the keys.. no issues what-so-ever.

When we got out of the car, he shut the driver's door.. not too hard, more or less just right.. and the glass fell out of the mirror and shattered in his driveway. I never let anybody drive my Fiat after that. She made her point in a way that was much better than any kind of major breakage.

Italian Cars are always jealous Mistresses
