Recall fixed now, enjoying the car a lot more
About 2 weeks ago (end of August) I got the recall fixed. The heat shield came in bent up the first time so it took a while to get another in. Dealer had it for the day as "This is the first time we've done one of these recalls" (very comforting to hear, but honest). At least they sprung for a rental. In Maryland we've had like 50 days so far 90+ this summer & I took back roads home from work (63 traffic lights) to avoid any sitting in traffic jams in 90+ commuting back from College Park to Pasadena (work commute 43 miles each way). Long summer doing that & the worry about "risk of fire" really had me bent out of shape. I think the new car bugs are finally all over with & I'm enjoying the car a lot more now.
