Wednesday, January 25, 2012

We left after lunch to drive to Tavares, FL for a doctor appointment to see if Marilyn’s arthritic hands could be made to feel better.  Halfway there, caution lights lit up on the dash of the Jeep – the ABS system, the 4WD system needed to be serviced, along with a couple of other lights.

Our first stop was the arthritis doctor, who told Marilyn that nothing could be done with osteo-arthritic hands.  Then we stopped to get Marilyn some larger knitting needles followed by a stop to get my new glasses adjusted.

Since we also needed an oil change, we went to Advantage Chrysler Jeep Dodge.  They did a diagnosis, and found that a speed sensor in one of the rear tires had gone bad.  So, $237 later, just over an hour, we were back on the road with no warning or caution lights lit up.

We did good getting gasoline though.  We used our Winn-Dixie gasoline discount card at one of the listed Shell stations (Mt Dora), and got gas for $3.36 per gallon ($0.15 off per gallon).  Not cheap, but better than $3.519 per gallon.
