Car Experienced Flooding Three Times

There were three times already that I have drove down to floods, first was when it was my first time to drive my car  and take note, that time the aircon does not function so well. That was a bit of adventure to me, because my car was fogging all over, thank GOD I survived.

The second one was last month, I have to passed by through this road because all the roads were blocked by floods and that was the last road we had to pass through, the last thing I heard from my friend’s brother-in-law who sat in the backseat  is do not change the gear because the water is up to my tailpipe already. If I will change my gear surely enough our engine would stop. So I did that and luckily we went through.

The third was the same road on the second one, this time I have to get through that road to fetch Jm from her venue of training. I have my friend with me and guess what? I was so nervous trying to get through, the worst is we have to stop in the middle because of the traffic. When we were able to get through, my exhaust pipe smoke so hard, when we arrive at the clubhouse, my friend then told me not to stop the engine or we will stock there.

I stopped the car when we were already home, thank GOD nothing much happen and we were still safely arrive home.

My Secondhand Car

I bought this car from a friend, actually I didn’t know that she was the one who owned that car and I actually didn’t see that friend for a while now. When we have to meet at the mall that was the time yet then that I learned she was the owner. I trusted her that the car was in good condition, plus the mechanic who is the friend of my sister reassured me of the car.

But after a month, the parts of the car gave up so I have to send it to the repair shop. The worst is when he tried to fixed a certain part, it would defect the other part, my friends were already telling me to send the car to other repair shop because the mechanic keeps on demanding some parts plus I already spend a lot of money for him to repair the car. The car shop that he recommended me to buy the parts is not only expensive but those are not original as well. My husband told me about Woodfins but geez it is not available in the country, he just told me then to send the car to other repair shop, which I agreed. My husband just told me he would be the one to buy the car parts next time it will broke again because since I replaced my mechanic, the car is doing great now. Yet my husband still would like to have replaced the parts with the store that he trust. I can’t argue with it though because honestly the car parts are not even quality.
