We discovered just as we were leaving that the dealership was just a few blocks from our location, so we decided to park in the large mall next to the RV center, unload the VW and drive it over to the dealership before heading back to the RV park. We were there by 11:20, dropped off the car for repair, and then walked back to the mall to have lunc. After lunch we drove back over to Black Bart's RV Park to get set up and await our call to come pick up the car. Black Bart's sits right next to I-40, and while it is not a glamorous RV park, it is perfect for our situation......easy off and on for the Interstate, close to town, and the dealership. We decided to pay for 2 nights since we didn't know if they would have our car done Thursday.
Around 3:30 I got the call from Jeff Ford at Findlay VW that our car was ready.......I had also asked them to find out why the "air bag" light was always on, and it turned out the driver's side seat belt buckle is defective and even though I am buckled in the sensor does not think so. This part has to be ordered, and will not be here until next Monday, so when we return from the Page, AZ area next week, we'll drop the car off again to have that fixed, and also the rear brake pads replaced. Otherwise the car is in good condition and should be for some time now. As it turns out the door issue was an easy fix.....just a matter of re-securing a cable that had come lose....yay!
The dealership sent a van over to pick us up, and we back at the dealership within minutes paying for our car, and on our way (by the way, they washed and vacuumed our car!).....we did make a quick stop at the local Safeway to buy a few things....there are always a few things we need just in case you hadn't noticed.....:D
Thursday was a great day.....everything we needed to accomplish was accomplished.....we'll kick around Flagstaff on Friday checking out some antique stores, see a movie, and visit a local micro brewery.
Life is good.....thanks for stopping by!
