Yesterday I dropped my smart off to have the front end alignment checked as I wore through a set of tires pretty darn fast, and they wore on the inside edges badly....

2 hours later, I got a call saying they couldn't align my car. fearing the worst, I asked why and was told that my car was too small to fit on their machine! I have never heard of a car that was too small for anything. Apparently they need a special adapter to make up for the smaller width of the car to fit their alignment machine. Instead of the $66 alignment, I need to got to a dealer and pay $170 for the same alignment (with the special adapter)

:shrug:

The joys of living in a small town I guess.

Yeah, there are a few shops around that also do alignments, but most places around here screw things up more than fix things. I usually do my own work just because I end up re-doing repairs I take in to have done. Just been busy lately with work and just plain life.
