Comments for Maxine Runs Cold
Maxine is home again and running like a new car. The repair came out to $500 less than what we feared. Thankfully the parts we needed came in and Maxine was ready for pick up just after lunch.
Before picking up Sean from school, I reinstalled Harriet's car seat (formerly Sean's). The feed for the seatbelt is really tight (and the plastic is sharp), so having small hands helps. Plus after dozens of times of installing the seat, I have it down to a science. Sean's booster seat takes about 30 seconds to install so we did that just last minute.
Both kids were very happy to be back in Maxine. I think Harriet likes the fact that her feet now reach the back of the seat. I think in the Accord she felt a little lost. Sean also commented on how he thought the Accord was "too big."
Maxine is running better than she has in months. The AC is blowing nice cold air without much time to get up and running. The engine stays cool while the AC is on. Most importantly though, she also passed her smog check. Now I can get her license renewed.
