Driving from NC to CA this week, I knew my window regulator was going on my driver’s door, so I’d avoided lowering it. Came to an Immigration checkpoint in NM yesterday, fortunately after a torrential downpour, and cracked the window as I approached the guard. Window proceeded to go all the way down and wouldn’t raise, so I drove like that to the next SC. Fortunately, it was about 20 degrees cooler than TX had been earlier approaching triple digits.
I called service from Deming and talked to the folks in SLC and they suggested I stop at the next service center on my route. I did persevere and manage to get the window up inch by inch with a bit of grinding, so I didn’t have to contend with weathering the drive or overnight wide open. Looked on the nav and it was too late to make service hours anywhere.
Made my way to the Tempe service center for their opening this morning. They took me right in and I was back on the road within 90 minutes. Of course, you always meet someone cool in the lobby and Macy appreciated the nap.
Kudos to Tempe, again. It’s actually the second time I’ve pit stopped there on a cross country trip and they’ve always been super accommodating, as have all the other random service centers I’ve popped in on.
