My mom’s car got a nail in the tire some months back, and it has been leaking to the tune of about 3 psi a week. She’s out of town so I’m tasked with getting it fixed, along with the annual service.

Now this is a Cayenne with the upgrade 20" wheels, so I was prepared for the bill. Must be $300+. But the dealer dropped my jaw with a quote for $530. For just the tire.

I noped the hell out of there and ordered the tire on TireRack for $309. Local installer wants $20 to do the job.

We returned the Fiat today, and also got that missing A/C recharge line cap for the new Compass.

All this had to be scheduled around several work meetings. At least the F355 isn’t causing headaches.
