I will write more about the present political situation later, but now I wish to report on an automotive crisis successfully handled earlier today.
My wife, Susan, drives a little 2011 bright red Toyota Yaris, which after six years has slightly more than 5000 miles on it. In the past two days, three distinct warning lights have appeared on the dashboard. I looked in the manual, and the instructions were that this could be dangerous and the car should be checked immediately. Well, when it comes to cars, I do as I am told, so this morning we took it in to the dealership where she bought it and turned it over, with fear and trepidation, to the service department. The minimum charges is $125, cheap for a life-threatening emergency.
They have just called. After an extensive check of the vehicle they did indeed find two problems, which they have corrected. What were they?
1. The gas cap was loose.
2. The tire pressure was low.
Thank God for advanced technology.
