my windshield wipers

quit on me.  My inspection sticker was almost up and since I have to go to the dealer for that, I put off the wipers as long as possible.  (The dealer is out of my way and I try to make as few trips as possible.)  I had an appointment scheduled and it was raining that morning so I had to reschedule.  I went yesterday and they diagnosed the problem.  It was the switch.  They didn't have the part and it was scheduled to rain today and tomorrow so they found a loaner for me.  I walked out and had to laugh.  They really know how to ruin it all for me.  All my "I love not having a car payment" and "my car is perfect for me" was on hold when I stepped outside and saw the SUV they had for me.  They do realize that's going to drive me nuts, right?  Of course.  It's a little one and is perfect for me... just like my car.  Oh, but then there's that whole car payment issue that I LOVE not having.  Oh well, one day I'll need a new car.  When I do, it'll be this one.

Here it is.

One thing that bothers me is the whole ECO thing.  The car turns off or goes into a standby mode when I come to a stop and starts back up when I let my foot off the brake.  It's weird and I don't like it.  I feel like I'm not in control.  I'm also not fond of the gear shift.  It's digital-ish and I'm having a hard time adjusting.  And what's with the tea cup?  I don't get that.

Maybe they'll be over that phase and will have gone back to normal when I get my silver one...
