not my car!

So that power steering cut out? wasn't just bubble. turns out a lot of mazda 5s and 3s are having a pump issues, so when I took it in for service today, they kept my car. they said they could have let me drive it out but I would have had to sign a waiver. They gave me a loaner and said it would be a week or two before the part came in.

So now I'm driving a toyota yaris with no power locks or windows. It's basically just as good as my saturn was, but compared to my m5 it's a big step down. It's amazing how quickly you get used to small comforts.

Luckily my taiko schedule is open enough right now that I don't have any big drum hauling planned. It does mean I won't be able to bring in my toy to the dojo and show it off until I get my car back.

I kind of liked Ira, despite the surprise, and think that will go back there again for my next service if this all ends well.
