Out of the Blue

Well, the cautious part of my cautious optimism about our car turned out to be more accurate than the optimism part, as it refused to start after having a couple of days to drain the battery. It spent the night at the mechanic: He found a problem with a dome light that stayed on when the door was closed, but he's not sure that's the entirety of the problem (and I'm pretty sure he's right that it isn't), so he's taking some more time to suss it out.

Having trouble seeing those kinds of problems crop with regularity to the point where you would claim that a new car should be purchased after your warranty period ends, I don't know, seems iffy. Maybe you just put your cars through the ringer in mileage or buy lemons, I don't know but I would think about doing some research Biff

It's mostly cultural. In California we drive, drive, drive, drive, and drive some more. It is very common to have extensive mileage on a car versus living in another State.
