Yup, dealer called on Friday, said I should be due for 35000 mile service.  I had to tell him I haven't been driving for a month, not quite there yet, 2000 miles away.  Then he asks about tires.  $200 off a set of 4 with free mounting, balancing, close to a $300 value. Costco can't even beat that one. He said I can drive the car into the bay and take it so they wont have to enter the car.  I've got about 10K left on them, but that's tough deal to walk away from.  I know the deal wont be there when I need them.  Thinking about that one.  $900+ buy for $599, taxes fees the whole enchilada included.

You have to take that deal. Dealership said they are splitting employees every other week to keep everyone going. Not sure if they get unemployment on the off weeks.

Governor ordered some more things closed. Parks and campgrounds basically. Sheltered in place without an actual shelter in place order.

Have a terrific day word!

Called up and took the deal.  It goes in tomorrow. Weasel tried to sell me a brake job too.  Drive in, hang outside reading the paper, doing email, pay over the phone, drive out.

Dealerships tend to have low employee counts.  They may well be on the cusp for an SBA loan to cover payroll which will get 100% reimbursement at the end.

Since there probably isn't enough work to go around, they may be giving each an alternating paid week off.  Keeping the service bays open retains customers versus closing the door,  paying everyone anyway and the customer going elsewhere.  Dealer service relies solely on customer loyalty.

Come on over here and I'll do the brake job for you.  Since you are a Tommie, I'll do it for parts, pads only.   Not changing out calipers and will only change out a rotor if it just comes off with no messing around with the bearing.  Nice drive!!.  I'll have some root beer ready!

Root beer will seal the deal. I'll have to find a way to ship some Pennsylvania Dutch Birch Beer.

It think ...suck...may be an understatement.  Hopefully you wont need the sonic blaster.

No sonic blaster. One was too large and partially in a tube blocking something. These are not the actual medical terms but what I remember after the seek and recover mission. Got them out, had a stent put in for some reason. Overall not a pleasant experience. Hydrocodone is good but not near as good as the fentanyl they gave me first. That stuff took me straight to Disneyland.

Have a fantastic day word!
