We got a call on Friday to go and pick up Bill's car. Needless to say, we were happy that it was done early. I had a Mary Kay party to attend that night, so Bill took the kids over to grandma's to play while I was gone. This also means he took the van, because the car seats where in there. I took the newly fixed car from Oak Lawn to Tinley Park. It was about 75 blogs and a half hour drive.
Half way there, I dummy light came on. I continued driving since I was almost there and grabbed the book to bring in when we got there. What I found out was that there is a “malfunction in the electronically controlled braking system”. It also said that failing to investigate the cause of the warning may lead to the system operating abnormally and possibly causing an accident. We were to have the vehicle inspected by a Toyora dealer immediately.
Needless to say, I was pissed. The brakes were something that they fixed AND I was 75 blocks away from home (aff). Bill and I had it out over whether I should drive it (he said yes — I said no). I ended up catching a ride home (aff) with the Mary Kay lady. We called the place that fixed the car this morning, and they towed it. (Guess I made the right decision leaving it there!).
Sooooo we have no idea when we the car back. Again. Sigh. (For those wondering, we have a really crappy rental car. Again.)
