So they gave me an Echo....
I am not sure where to post this but I figure I am Canadian and I have a Rex so this is a safe place to rant!
All excited today cuz I am taking in the car for it's 6000 oil change...ask to have Synthetic...all is good...do the oil change in 15 mins., I pay, go out and start the car and there is a new noise coming from the engine. Get the guy out there (now remember, I am a woman so he's looking at me like I don't know what I am talking about) and he asks if it was there before. I say, no, of course not, and then he calls out the mechanic. Guy comes out with his stethiscope, 10 secs later yells at me to turn off the car! Something wrong with the cam...too dangerous to drive, I have to leave the car there and they may have to replace the engine! All I wanted was an oil change and they're telling me it could take weeks! Next thing I know, some guy is telling me to sign a contract on the rental of an ECHO...I started laughing! It was that or cry....
Mechanic calls me 10 mins ago to tell me that a 15 cent piece of metal had snapped off where it holds the belt in place and had managed to do significant damage to the belt...I am supposed to get it back tomorrow a.m....for now I am the girl in disguise driving around in the Echo....no need to reply but thanks for letting me rant...I feel much better now!

Yikes! I hope your car comes out 100% after this little incident.
Enjoy the echo while you have it cauz it's cheap on gas!
Besides, its rear end looks like the twin of the WRX!

haha i had to drive an echo twice when i had body work done to the car....they are the ugliest things alive! i always got confused when i turned left b/c the guages are in the middle and when the left turn signal is turned on, i see it out of the corner of my right eye..ahh well, good luck with the rex =)
