I lament to inform you guys that the Asspat™, my beloved and unreliable 2015 Passat TSI, went off to the VW service department in the sky.
My mother borrowed it to buy something at Publix and a moving van ran a red and hit the car head on. Since it’s worth about $3.20 in perfect shape, it’ll most likely be totaled. She’s fine and will more than likely be sore for a while, but my baby protected her against a large moving van. That’s all I care about.
Sure, it’ll hurt for a while, but she’ll be fine. All we have left is to see what the future holds for me. It’s been just over 3 years and 59k miles of making fun of how unreliable it is on here. I’ve spoken of the perils of VW ownership for years, but I’m kind of sad to see this chapter in my life come to an end like this. It’s the closure I neither expected nor wanted so soon. Regardless, I think it’s safe to say I’ll be car shopping in the near future. For now, I’ll be mourning the loss of the friend who’s been by my side (and at the dealership for warranty repairs) since my senior year of high school.
Long live the almighty Asspat™
