Took my van in for servicing today & got a call 5 hrs, later that my car is unsafe to drive.  Apparently part of the right front frame is so rusted you could put your finger through it.  Wonder why they didn't see it six months ago when it was in for servicing. The van is 10 yrs old and only has 69,000 miles on it.   The "good" news is that I get another newer car.   I guess I know what I will be doing this week.


  1. Glad they found the problem, before you got stranded or worse somewhere. You'll have fun car shopping. You'll have to post a pic of you in your new car.

  2. Wow, that is low milage on a 10 year old vehicle. But glad they found it before something bad happened. Guess it goes to reason something good comes from something bad. Can't wait to see your new ride.

  3. Yikes - 69,000 miles isn't many - I have almost twice that on mine!! Well, glad you found out now rather than "later." Have fun shopping!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  4. That is a bummer.. at least you got a new car to replace the other one!

    Thanks for following my blog and entering the contest--how fun! Just noticed something though thought I'd help you with--the picture you have posted on your sideline isn't linked to the blog so other people who might want to enter won't be able to find my blog! Thanks SO MUCH for adding it there! :D :D
