The Continued Woes of a Ford Fiesta

3 04 2008

My car seems to be going through a series of rather unfortunate events at the moment, and I swear is on the way out.  This wouldn’t be such a bad thing if I coud afford a new one.

Anyway today driving along the motorway my windscreen got hit by a flying boulder and along with scaring the bejeesus out of me, it left a chip that looks rather like a bullet hole in my window.

This is to go along with:

  • Damaged wheel hub that keeps deflating my tyre
  • Big dent in the back from the unfortunate incident with the Frontera
  • The problem that I hope is just the air filter which keeps stopping power
  • Rust all the way around the wheel arches
  • One of my speakers is playing up
  • The leak in my water squirter bottle
  • My rear windscreen wiper not working all the time

But then again, this car is over 10 years old now and has done nearly 200,000miles, mostly on motorways.  If it lasts me until I can afford something decent It will be doing well.  Still I keep praying for someone to steal it…
