Yellow Cars

We were supposed to get hubby's car back last Tuesday. Then the dealership where his car is being repaired called on Wednesday and said it would be ready on Friday no later than Monday. Then we get a call on Friday to inform us that is won't be ready on Monday however he would have it ready on Wednesday at the latest. (Are you seeing a little bit of a pattern here?) Keep in mind they have had my car since October 1 2008.

So I trot my happy self over to the dealership and explained the false promises were unacceptable. He of course blames it on the paint and it takes two days to dry before they can put the decals on? (WTF??? Is this the first car that you have repaired that needed paint and decals or were you just naive and figured you could slap those decals right on before the paint was dry?)

I informed him that he needed to get me a rental at his expense because I have exhausted my rental coverage (and the wonderful person who hit me didn't have enough insurance so I had to claim under my insurance...biatch) and so he agreed to get me a car on Wednesday. I explained that wouldn't be acceptable considering it was supposed to be ready earlier last week and then he changed it to no later than Monday (yesterday). He agreed to get me a rental today. This is now what I am driving...




It's not bad...but yellow? I honestly believe there should be certain colors of the rainbow that should not be painted on cars. The only yellow vehicles on the road should be school buses. My hubby volunteered to drive this tomorrow but I will save him any embarrassment and I will drive it.

Hubby is definitely counting down the days until he can drive this again...

Good luck on getting your car back...I swear you'd think that car dealerships would be doing all they can right to make people happy...especially with so many of them having to close!!

You go girl, with your yellow car!! :)
