can i tell you how much i hate this car?
i'm driving one as a rental.
my own beloved car (an '06 subaru forester) is in the shop. i took it in to get snows put on and to have them look at my headlights.
it turns out my headlights need replacing. and, oh by-the-way, the head gasket needs replacing. and the water pump. and the timing belt.
and the clutch.
and the head cylinder.
and yeah, the left-side light that lights up the rear license plate.
at over 111,000 miles, one might expect it to need a few things replaced. the good news is that with this wok done it'll probably go another 90,000 miles.
meantime, i am driving a chevy malibu and while there's nothing so terrible about it, it has limited visibility and it's nto built to carry gear and i hit my head getting in and out, and i'm not especially tall.
i hate it.
but i'm driving along and i see this little bubbly thing in the middle of the top of the dash and i think maybe it is some kind of light sensor and i wonder what THAT might do. i speculate that it might auto-dim some lights or something, so i toss my hat up on over it.
huh. that's kind of cool.
here's the video.
