My car made my day a bit tougher than I’d hoped. Was in Stockholm for meetings this morning and then decided to stop by a big shopping mall called Nacka Forum where I bought some clothes. Left Nacka through a big tunnel when it happened.. The car stopped. Right in the middle of the tunnel.. As cars were rushing by it didn’t take more than a few minutes for assistance to get there. They towed me out of the tunnel and then hooked me up with another tower who could help me get the car to a garage.
Said and done. He brought me to a workshop specialized in Jaguar, Land Rover and Range Rover. As we were at the gates, the mechanic said: “I’m pretty sure it’s the gearbox. Repairing it is going to get expensive. Don’t bother bringing the car in to the shop unless you have 50 000 SEK in your pocket.”
Since it’s Friday afternoon and the mechanic won’t work weekends nothing is getting done until next week. Not sure what my plan for the car is yet.
As for me, the super sweet mechanic took me to the train station where I caught a train to my buddy in Västerås. That’s where I’m at right now. The next few days will be a bit of an adventure.
