New Car

In case you have been wondering what I have been up to well, our car has some sort of seizure and now we are looking for a new car.

About a week ago we were on our way to pick up Bean from school.  We were stopped at a light on probably the busiest, most miserable streets in North Texas.  The car died.  It just quit.  Hubs tried to start it, it would turn over and run for a couple of seconds and die.  We managed to get it out of the street but we never could get it to start again.

Enter tow truck.  Please take said car to the dealership.  We followed later and couldn't find the car -- we weren't sure it ever made it to the dealership.  The next morning we were assured the car was there and they were looking into it.

After several tries they got it started and went through the process several times and pronounced it cured.  They kept it one more night just to make sure. 

We were told to pick it up.  There would be no charge.

We asked what happened and nobody knew.  They couldn't find anything wrong with it.  They thought there might be air in the fuel line.  How did it get there?  Could it happen again?  Questions answered with shrugged shoulders.

We are driving it but with much trepidation.  We just don't trust it.  We are also very annoyed that this is a 2014 Subaru Outback --supposedly one of the safest, most reliable cars on the market. 

So, that is what we have been up to -- test driving cars.  Fun?  Not. So. Much.
