car log was too close to cat log!
today i brought in the car to TQ for a routine checkup. the last was a year ago. i was supposed to change the oil sometime, and also bring it back for a checkup by last september, but i did not. i’m glad i finally did because the left front axle needed replacing. $295 out the door.
the back right (i think, yikes) brake pad is getting low, but not critically so; Toan said they’d check it in 6 months.
