I realized again, today, while driving downtown that my AC wasn't blowing cool air. I was near Swede Masters so decided to stop in for a lesson on how to operate it, convinced that the problem was with me, not the car. Karen took the driver's seat to give me a lesson, and I sat shotgun and paid attention. It soon became clear to us both that something was truly wrong with my AC. As luck had it, one of the mechanics was able to hook my car up to a machine on the spot. Once he had a diagnosis, the plan was for me to make an appointment and return for the repair. An hour and one-half later and after paying a very reasonable service charge, I was back on the road with my AC fully functioning, How could I beat that?
