Did you know that cars can get jealous?

Posted 03-09-2009 at 05:19 PM by ws6transam
It must be true! This is, like, the third time it's happened, where when I bring in a new vehicle, the replacement vehicle has a hissy fit and fails in some sort of fashion. It first happened in 1998, when I brought home our Grand Cherokee. As soon as I did, our '88 Ford Tempo had it's fit by giving up it's clutch the VERY NEXT DAY.

Then, it was the Saturn SW2. We ordered our 2001 Venture Minivan, and sure enough, the day we were to deliver the SW2 to the dealership, the exhaust system broke in half just above the axle. Lucky for us, the dealership gave us a break and ignored it.

Then, there is now. I brought home my 2006 Avalanche, and had it parked next to the Jeep. The Jeep had been mysteriously losing coolant, and I thought it might have been head gaskets. It wasn't, though. It was something entirely different: The Jeep voiced its disapproval as I was cleaning it up for sale, by showering the garage floor with a nice spray of antifreeze, just as I began applying the wax to the roof. So, shortly after cleaning it up, I went to the parts store and bought a new radiator for the old girl: $154 plus tax. It's sort of a going-away present, I think, to an old Jeep that served us reliably for nearly eleven years. If that doesn't appease the parts-a-holic soul that is embodied by that vehicle, then maybe, just maybe, I'll buy it some bearings for the transfer case. However that's IT.

Maybe it's car jealousy. Then again, maybe it's car resignation. They serve us so well, then we bring home another replacement car. Maybe our old steeds shrug their fenders, exhale, and just .... give up their spirit, or something. That is the instant when they finally break.
