Instead, our new car was sitting proudly in our driveway, all shiny and new.
The team at the mechanics were professional and friendly. My husband was impressed by the detailed report given over the phone, so that he could choose to not get certain jobs done, instead of being slugged for them unnecessarily. Twig reckons he could do some of the jobs himself, thus saving us a bit of cash. I know this means they will never get done, which will save us on both money and his time.
I have also vowed to learn a little more about the cars we drive.
Most importantly, I am going to learn what the make of the car is. Calling it a "white car" just doesn't seem detailed enough.
Craig Sinclair, the Pulteney Street KTAS Store Manager, certainly thought it would be a good idea I tried to at least learn the car's model. Secretly, he hoped I wouldn't learn much more than that. It's good for business if I leave the finer details to him and his team.
