Immediately after having my oil change/tire rotation yesterday. They indicated a list of items suggested for repair, all of which I was not surprised to hear except for a stud needing replacement. When I asked they said a stud was broken on one of the wheels. They asked if I wanted them to email me an estimate and I said sure.
I had been on the fence as far as putting money into this car or trying to get something different until my recent visit to the ER, which, like Kyle’s braces, is going to cost me more than my last car, so now I am going have to try to keep this one going a few more years.
The car had a little wobble when I left, but I initially chalked it up to just the wear on the tires being different tread amounts, that is until I got on the interstate and it was like driving a paint shaker. I called my son from the road and he advised me to pull over and he would come check it out.
I called my son from the road and he advised me to pull over and he would come check it out, but I recall the time I got a flat tire on the interstate and just slowed way down to around 35-40mph as I was near the exit to Goshen Road by then so wanted to try to get it home. Was stressful as I kept getting honked at and flipped off, but I made it home. Kyle came and checked it out and felt the shaking in the wheel too, thought maybe it might be a bent rim where it might not have been noticeable on the bank, but as the car was front wheel drive, now was and suggested switching the tires back to check.
As the oil change place was closed on Sunday, was going to go to Sears as they are open on Sunday, but as soon as Marv saw me driving it and the wheel wobbling, he had me take it back and park it and advised he would contact the oil change place tomorrow,as it was not a safe to drive even a short distance.
