So, the lovely better half has decided that she no longer likes her 2015 Subaru Forester due to recent events with the car....first, the "check engine" light came on with a scant 179 miles to go on the bumper to bumper warranty. Turns out, there is a TSB out for of all things, the alternator and tensioner pulley that it creates a pulse that triggers the check engine light. (Yeah, I know...odd indeed) No issue there, it was all taken care of under warranty and we were on our way. Then, a few weeks later ,the back brakes begin squeaking...take a peek - lo and behold, she needs back brakes...now the car is hesitating under acceleration from a stop...she stated (and I wrote it on the calendar) "You were right, I should've bought a Ford."

 

Long story short, tonight we pick up her new 2018 Escape SE.... 

 

She had three Escapes (2001, 2005, and 2010) previous to swerving into Subie-ville......

Congrats to her on the new ride.

 

I have to add...you mentioned in another thread she is your girl friend.  If she truly said "you were right," you probably need to make her your wife!  :hysterical:

And don't get used to it.   That's probably the last time you'll hear that.

My buddy used to introduce his wife as "This is my first wife Debbie".

 

Last I heard they were still married after 30+ years.
