Greetings, my fellow port swillers!

Whelp, Middle Gel’s Volkswagen Tiguan is once again in the shop for repairs. This time the turbo charger apparently is starting to go sideways.

It’s a 2012 and we bought it with about 30K on it in 2016.  I’d swear that blasted car has been in the shop and cost us more coin than the entire rest of the Port Swiller fleet combined, including my 17 y.o. Wrangler (on which the front differential is getting ready to let go, but that’s a different story).

The good news, at least, is that the Gel’s young man was able to beat the dealership’s quote down by a considerable amount.  (Did I mention the Gel has a gen-u-ine Young Man?  She does. They’ve been seeing each other a few months now. I’ve not met him yet, but I’m pleasantly surprised to find that, so far, I like everything she’s told me about him.)

Anyhoo, so much for the supposed superiority of “German Engineering”.

Grrrr…..
