I make it a practice to build up Car Karma. If you are polite and let cars in and make sure you check the crosswalks and let people cross safely, your Car Karma will come back to you. I used up some of my CK today.
Went to get an Oil Change (Hutch's in Castro Valley) and they noticed that the upper bolt that holds in the Alternator, was almost all the way out! Talk about hanging by a thread... It was on an angle and it was shaking when the car was running. YIKES! They went the extra mile and straightened it up and put it back so it was more secure. Then I went over to Upper Grove Way Auto Repair and even though they were just about close for the weekend, they found a new bolt that would work and put it all back to normal. With 193,000 miles, I still need a few more miles. Thanks everyone!
