Car emissions test completed
The last major item for my car "to do" list, prior to my return to work next week, was to have my required emissions test performed. I decided that yesterday would be a "car in driveway" day, and knowing that I had to venture out this morning, I put emissions testing on my errands list. I checked on line, and found a testing center in the neighboring town, through which I would pass on my way back home. Perfect. We stopped in at a local repair shop and were greeted warmly and professionally, shown a comfortable area to wait in, and the car was soon tested. Since I just had it serviced, I was pretty certain that it would pass, which it did. $20 to the testing center, a copy of my report for the car glove box, and within 15 minutes, we were back on our way home. I would definately return to this local business, versus the gas station that we have used for years, located some distance from where I now live.
I want to skate into September and then make arrangements for a full detailing of my car. Looking at the cloth seats, they need it!
