Car Pay Diem

     We picked up my Eclipse from the dealer today, after having them (with resistence) replace the Catalytic Converter for free (required by law for 8 years). I drove it home from the dealer, and it was amazing. Pretty much like it was new. Dad thinks that we still need to replace the plugs for the umpteenth time in the year and a half that it’s been bad, and (I think because of that) it’s not quite perfect, but it doesn’t make a helluva lot of sense. Dad specifically requested he get “props” on my blog for his help in this situation. I guess since yesterday was his birthday, I’ll humor him.
     Anyway, I will be writing to Mitsubishi soon about how this one part (which was FREE to replace, no less) took this dealer a year and a half to replace, and ONLY after we made them do it. In the meantime, I had to deal with a car that *sometimes* didn’t accelerate when I pushed the pedal. If nothing else, they should reimburse us for the $400 ignition coil that was replaced for no reason. It doesn’t cover the 8 sets of spark plugs & wires we went through in that year and a half, or the pain I endured from having my first beautiful car (seemingly) die a slow death. That letter should be an interesting one to write.
