So, I took the Jeep in for service this morning. First off, they didn’t have me scheduled for an appointment for some reason even though I called them and made an appointment on Saturday. Oh well, not a big deal apparently – they took me right in.
They asked if I needed a lift into work, I said yes. When asked where I was going, the service advisor suggested that I take the train into work and that they would provide two tickets. OK, that’s a good deal – thank you.
Anyway, about 9am or so, I got a call from the dealer and it wasn’t very good news. She wasn’t exactly sure what was wrong, but the engine might need to be replaced. D’Oh…
So, I had to send her a copy of the service records. I don’t keep those, I guess I should and I should likely scan them in for the future – guess I will start doing that. Anyway, I called Jiffy Lube in St. Catharines and he was more than happy to fax me a copy of the records and he did within 10 minutes. I also got a record of the oil change that I had done in Calgary and faxed both of those to the dealership.
Now, apparently we have to wait until tomorrow (or so) for approval for it to be covered under warranty. Well, it is 3.5 years old and has 93k (or so), so, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be covered. If they give me bad news tomorrow, that will be interesting.
For those that know me, I am sure you know that won’t go over well.
I am not going to worry about it – we will see tomorrow.
At any rate, I will be without a vehicle for a week or so, perhaps more. I have arranged to get a lift on Sunday to my double-header baseball game. As for groceries and what not, they are just down the street so I am not worried about that. I can take the bus and train to work for now and Zeus and Blondie will just have to get used to not having me home at lunch.
