    Really miss my car

    My car is halfway between my house and Toronto. I dropped it at a friend's who then drove me to Toronto for my surgery. I wasn't prepared to leave my little car in hospital parking, (yikes!, $30/day) and was worried I may not be cleared to drive on my discharge.

    So it's been since Jan 30th till now, and who knows how much longer, that I don't have my little car.

    I really miss it. And because it's so easy to drive I feel I would be safe to myself and others driving it. I'm not officially off the road, it's just suggested that I don't tire myself driving or take long trips, etc for a while more.

    My Saturn Vue? God no, it's so big, stiff clutch, cold seats, no way I'd feel safe to myself and others driving it.


    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century
