So I had a roller-coaster of a day.
Brought a new car today. I was so exited, its a 4 wheelchair drive, has a bullbar, winch, roof racks, heater seats, even a sun roof.
Correction it HAD a sunroof.
On our way home when we got away from the roadworks that are Melbourne roads keeping us at a slow 80kmph, we finally were able to speed up to 100kmph, when the sunroof glass decided to yeet itself off the car.
Thankfully noone was behind us at the time. And no other damage was done to the car.
But now instead of a sunroof I now have a sun hole.
And a week of rainy days ahead.
My step sister agreed to let me store it under her carport to wait out the storm coming through tomorrow evening. With a tarp for some extra protection.
Found out the sunroof was under a recall so hope that I may be able to get it replaced free of charge, however that’s still a maybe as the website says that the glass replacement is free of charge, where as the whole thing will probably need replacing.
AND the closest place that replaces them is an hour away. Not far on Australia’s standard, but did I mention the WEEK OF RAIN AND THE HOLE IN THE ROOF OF MY CAR!
So tomorrow I’m going to bunnings and picking up a plastic table cover and some ducttape. And hoping for the damn best, to try and make sure I dont have a surprise interior wash while driving it to get it fixed.
Wish me luck!
Oh also to add insult to injury i found out the heated seats, one of my must haves in a car (bc chronic pain and cold do not mix) dont work either, possibly, hopefully just a blown fuse or switch, but still omg.
So here’s to that!
