used car

I saw this blog on Bragger's page and it is called Do these shoes match this purse?

What a great name for a blog.

Anyway we are invited to write about a variety of things and one of them is ' a used car'.

This is very much at the front of my mind. I bought my car ( used) about fifteen months ago. I really do love it. However, the last six months it has spent more time in the garage than on our drive. Last night I broke down on a roundabout ( great idea in rush hour). After much stress and being helped by good friends it has been towed ( a transporter in fact) away yet again. This time: gearbox fault, parkbrake fault, and hideous squeaking noise under the driver's seat. Sigh.

Another courtesy car on the drive. The neighbours must think we are mad.

Thanks for the mention and I'm glad you wrote along- and you with your poor car! Auto madness runs amok- good luck!

Oh dear, that doesn't sound too good. I'm afraid I would find it hard to love a car that was so unreliable, particularly with the amount of travelling you do.
