Long Overdue Car Repairs

These past two months I‘ve had problems with “Lady Rouge”, our Peri car which we have purchased Great Wall Cars Philippines more than a year ago. The problem was not the car itself but were from other external causes.

The first was its side mirror on the driver’s side got stolen – twice, actually. The first time it was stolen, Great Wall Cars Philippines gave us a temporary replacement for it which eventually got stolen, too. The second problem came when a storm hit a few weeks ago. While driving home from our church in Guadalupe, Makati, a strong wind blew which caused a branch of a tree to fall on the Peri’s windshield.

It was a blessing that the branch did not break through the glass and that the accident is covered by our insurance. We are now just waiting for the parts to be available so the repairs will me made soon. I hope it won’t take too long anymore because it has been 2 months already since the side mirror got stolen. It’s not like we’re getting a motorhome repair because our car is just a regular 4-door hatchback.
