This morning we walked up to the timeshare that we are both on the board, and sat in on the owner’s breakfast. It was very nice.
Then I walked the beach for half an hour, as my husband wanted to go to the Mall. It is much cooler for him to walk there.
I drove us to within a mile of the Mall, and we both could hear a thud, thud, coming from the back of the car. I pulled into a Burger King lot opposite the Mall. We took a look at the tires, and all looked fine.
I suggested we have a snack there, in case I had to drive to the nearest Hondo location. Neither of us ate much, and my anxiety was starting to rise. It’s an area that I don’t know, so feeling apprehensive, and also my husband was concerned that I would be driving it without knowing the problem.
We came out, and I drove it backwards, and forwards. We checked the tires. My husband suggested driving it over a curb to see if anything dislodged. We still heard the noise. I then kept driving it, parking, reversing, driving, etc.
When I pulled up, and got out, a long piece of thick black tape was hanging from a rod behind the wheel. I pulled it, and it unraveled more. We were praying that this was the cause.
I drove down the road passed the Mall, and the noise had stopped, so did a U turn, and went into the Mall. We did a little walking, and I got a Starbucks coffee, and decided to come back to the timeshare.
I won’t be driving it much here at the beach, and a careful drive home on Friday. I will take it to our local Honda dealership, as we only bought it 3 months ago, and I want to be 100% sure it is safe.
Finally calmed down.
