I was typically one of those teenagers who said I would never own a minivan when I had teenagers, and of course, I now have several teenagers plus drive a minivan. I literally hate the looks of minivans, but they are just too practical to ignore. My hate for our minivan grew as it seemed to have problem after problem. Although it only had 50,000 miles on it when every one of us purchased it, every one of us ended up having to update the transmission in the first year of owning it. It ran well for about two years, plus then our heating system started acting up one morning. I noticed that I wasn’t able to adjust the blower. My fiance was on a two month long business trip, plus I didn’t want to spend the money to go to the dealership to get it checked out, so I decided to search online to try plus figure out the problem, and the blower wasn’t turning off when I turned the automobile off either, so that meant if I didn’t fix the problem within the morning, I would run the automobile battery dead. Every one of us had to make two other trips that morning to football games for our teenagers, plus the automobile got so hot. The heating system was either on full blast or completely off. I finally broke down plus called a friend of mine from high university who is a Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C professional. Although he didn’t usually job with cars, he figured out that I had a bad receptacle plus fixed the issue. I am so glad that the absurd heating system is no longer stuck on full blast!
