Our car has been making scary noises lately. It's certainly getting on in years and miles (over 11 years and 120,000 miles!) so I suppose it's no surprise. I'll be sad if we can't fix it properly, and not just for financial reasons. It was actually my parents' car for almost a decade and they very generously gave it to us when we moved to Michigan from England last year.
Thankfully, my dad knows some guys at a shop who do good work and only charge us for parts and sometimes minimal labor. The flip side of it though is that we have to book it out there EARLY tomorrow, which involves getting up at like 5:30 AM! Eek! That is too early for Saturday, but if they can fix the car, it will be worth it in the end.
And of course it's the perfect excuse for a Starbucks stop! I'm thinking iced coffee with milk and a muffin - that'll be nice get-out-of-bed motivation.
So that's what my Saturday's going to look like - how about yours?
EDIT - Well, it wasn't too bad! Took a few hundred to fix (something with the brake system) and it should all be okay now... until something else happens! ;)
