So, I took my van in for a routine oil change this morning. I happen to mention, “You know, my interior lights flicker a bit. It’s just a minor annoyance, but thought I should mention it.”
An hour later Mr. Saturn Guy comes out and says, “Yeah…you know that little light problem? You need a new alternator, and we aren’t going to let you drive home in the vehicle. It’s not safe. You’re lucky it didn’t die on you before now.”
So they had us safely stowed away in a rental (paid for by them) until tomorrow when it should be fixed. I’m a *bit* nervous since the van isn’t even two years old yet, and it only has 14,000 miles on it. But I’m grateful that it didn’t die on us while I was driving with all my sweeties in it.
So there went my morning.
And I *should* mention, I LOVE my Saturn! It’s the third one we’ve owned, and this is truly the first unexpected problem to come along. Hopefully it will be the last. *crossing fingers*
