Totally copying Mama Drama-Times Two on this one!
Related to my road trip plans, I took my car this morning to get an oil change. Responsible, right? Well, yes, but it had also been over a year (perhaps as long as two years) since my last oil change.
The service center just called me. Apparently, I "definitely need my tires replaced" before the winter (which I translate to: before I drive 1000 miles). They are dry rotted and the tread is worn. Why is this?
Because the tires have not been replaced (to my memory) since I got the car in July 1998. Yes folks, my tires are over 11 years old. And I have done very little to keep them and the rest of my car in good shape.
So you'd better call Car Protective Services to report some serious neglect.
Pick yourself up by your own Bootstraps!!! Now!
