My Baby Purrrrs Again

If there is anything I hate spending money on its car repairs. Unfortunately, that means I hold off as long as possible to fix the repairs needed. About five months ago I took my car through an automatic car wash. Most washes have metal tracking bars so your car is placed where it is needed. Well, my car is more narrow than most so my wheels got knocked around a bit. It was about a week later that my car started to make a bad sound. Last week the sound grew so loud that I couldn’t hear my radio even at full volume, so it was time to fix the problem. I was thinking that I had a bent axle and I didn’t want to spend that much money on a car that I only owe a few more payments on. Well it just turned out to be a loose and wore out wheel bearing...so bad that the mechanic said he’s never seen one so bad and I had about a week before it totally blew, which could have cause a major accident. Well, I’m glad the repair wasn’t that serious and not too costly and I’m so happy my baby is purring perfectly yet again!

I hate car stuff, too. I always feel like they're trying to pull one over on me (since I'm a girl and all). Glad yours wasn't too yucky!
