What good is it?

I love my car. It's the perfect car for someone like me who is not very car savvy. I never remember or know how to check my fluids or even where they are under the hood so I can check them. But now I don't have to worry. If there is a problem anywhere, my car lets me know. If I am low on washer fluid it annoyingly displays a message and beeps at me until I take care of it. Up until yesterday, my little reminders had been accurate. If it said I only had four more miles to go before I ran out of gas, I knew I could get to Costco from work. So when I ran out of gas yesterday with supposedly "15" miles of gas left, my faith in my car's ability to tell me what was wrong wanned slightly. I hope that this was a once in a blue moon occurance, because if not I don't know what I am going to do!

What kind of car do you have? It sounds pretty amazing, other than the last blunder.

I hope you found a cute guy to help you get gas to fill back up. :)

Something tells me that you actually went 20 miles on your supposed 15... :) Oh the joys of owning a BMW. (Doesn't that stand for Big Mormon Wagon? )
