the jetta strikes again

we have a jetta named felix. he's 8 years old and has 109,000 miles on him. he has a 1.8 turbo engine and heated seats. we like him... but he doesn't like us. the water pump broke the day we brought him home (august 11). we finally were able to get him fixed last week (ahem... mid-November-ish). new water pump... new battery... and a few new odds & ends. oh how fun to cruise around in him w/ the seat heaters on. i never had to worry about my bum being cold.

this morning we got up and went to the German bakery that we love. there were lots of other VW's for him to speak German with there. we thought he'd like it.... but then driving home all of the warning lights on the dashboard illuminated and a sharp beeping noise started sounding. and then the engine quit. a couple of hours and my first tow-truck ride ever we were home. and now jon has to replace the alternator.

i think me and jon are just trying to see how many places in durham we can break down and how many times we can call his dad to rescue us.
