Update to not impressed.

Sunday, August 3, 2008

While leaving the lot with my new vehicle Friday night, we were delayed because I couldn't turn the key in the steering column. After trying about 10 times, while cranking the wheel, I called Tony over and had him try. No success for him either, so we ran down our salesman and had him come back.

He jimmied the wheel a bit, gave me a look like I was an idiot and promptly turned the key, repeatedly turning it off and on for further proof of my idiocy. So, I kind of shrugged it off, even though I knew that it wasn't like previous times when the wheels locked.

Fast forward to running to Rainbow yesterday morning, leaving the house I had an issue with turning the key, followed by 3 minutes of frustration trying to leave Rainbow. This of course let to the 45 minute meltdown in my driveway, resulting in my being an hour late to my company party.

Tony called the dealership manager and he told us that he would have a tow truck out to us yesterday afternoon . . . and it still sits in our driveway now.

That stinks. At first I thought it must be the wheel lock, but obviously there is something else going on. Good luck.

Oh that sucks royally. I hope they fix it and soon- there's nothing worse than getting something new and soemthing being wrong with it! I know the feeling, life just seems to be that way for me, haha. I hope they get it fixed soon! It's beautiful! I love the Vues , they are sooo nice! I was looking at them before but I went with the Ford Escape- I like it and I got an amazing deal that I couldn't turn down. Maybe in the future I can drive the Saturn Vue.

Have a wonderful week and happy driving :)
