In an earlier post this morning regarding buying extended warranties I wrote
"Personally I'd prefer to hang on to my money 'til the failure actually
occurs - if it occurs. Then I'll pay."
Well, I may have an opportunity to do that now on my 2002 AMG.
Last night as I was coming home from shopping I had to flash my hi-beams
several times at an old lady who was turning in front of me while talking on
her cell phone at the same time. She stopped and blocked an intersection
for no reason at all. She must have been having a very pleasant
conversation and forgot she was driving.
At any rate I flashed my lights at her and she woke up and moved. Glaring
at me all the while like I was some sort of bad guy.
After she cleared the intersection I proceeded onward and discovered my left
blinker was on. I reached over and moved the lever up one click and the
left blinker stopped but the right blinker started flashing. That didn't
seem right. The lever should have been in the middle, neutral position. I
checked it again and it was in the top position which indicated that it was
in the correct position for the RH blinkers so I moved it back down one
notch to the center position and the LH blinker immediately started blinking
Anybody ever heard of this?
This car has given me almost no problems at all in 90,000 miles but maybe
now is my chance to P & M about what a crummy car it is.
