They say ignorance is a blessing in disguise.. and I strongly feel this saying coming to life in my case. I have always maintained cars... to the most as per my standards, but it seems that that maintenance was only superficial. I always kept an eye on the service schedules and one ear on any undesired sound from the car and tried to get them addressed ASAP. But now.. reading through different threads in this forum has made me concerned about many facts... I feel I have started loosing it now.. I am getting more and more concerned about tracking the faults than enjoying the drive... Many points now constantly hover around my mind at the time of driving, like: 1. Are the break pads making too much noise? If they have worn out, are they effecting the discs? 2. Are the throttle responses ok? or could there be a leak in the turbo hose. 3. Is the drive getting any smallest indication of jerks, if yes, I must get my fuel filter check before it causes a failure in fuel pump. 4. Do I see any sign of time belt wear out? 5. Do I feel any problem with suspension? Ball joints? 6. Will the spare be available at ASS if something goes wrong? 7. What kind of dent on pocket will it cause? The spare cost trends are very different in Fiat than that of Maruti. Why am I thinking all this? Three reasons: 1. As per the experience of members, one can not trust blindly on the SA to check the car thoroughly at the time of service / if the car goes for any other work and identify potential problems before they actually occur. 2. Too much of knowledge of failures and features. It is same like, one who is not a doctor, but learns about ailments from word of mouth starts fearing the worst even if he coughs once. 3. I may be growing over-possessive, over-protective to her. Vicious circle I have gone into. Someone help .. pull me out... And give me something else besides... what is to happen shall happen, do what you may and what is not to happen shall not happen, do what you may.
