October gets a little more interesting for me

Swapped to my winter vehicle, the trusty 2012 KIA Rondo last Monday. It was parked for six months because it is my winter vehicle. On the drive home I noticed the brakes pulsing noticeably. I called the shop that did the brakes only a year ago and booked an appointment.

This morning I had the car in the shop at eight this morning. An hour later the service guy came up to me and said the parts were going to be replaced under warranty and they were going to cover the cost of the labour. They even gave me the use of one of their vehicles for the day while mine is in the shop. I suspect there is more to the story however, since this is not costing me anything except my time I will leave it as is.


  1. Better than a jab in the butt with a sharp stick.

  2. In keeping with the comment from LL, an old air force buddy used to say - It's better than a kick in the ass with a frozen mukluk - or It's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.

  3. Best not to question free repairs - under warranty or not. You probably don't want to know!
