Dearest Jetta,

We've been through a lot... special events like Proms, a ton of Road Trips, Graduation from High School AND College, a couple of big girl jobs, and of course many shopping trips to San Francisco. You know I love you. You know there is no one else. But I have a questions to ask you....

Why are you falling apart all of a sudden?
-New Trunk Lock -$250
-New Brakes - $500
-Replaced that weird looking hose - $200

You see, Mama loves you, but I just can't afford to keep putting all of this money into you, I mean maybe if you spread out the repairs/maintenance/smogging/ect, but having them ALL happen within 2 months? It isn't really fair (or friendly for that matter).

Maybe this is payback for the cracked windshield I have been forcing you to sport all over town for the last year? I know I know - it's an eyesore and rather embarrassing, but that costs money to replace, and honestly I can still see out of the window- which means I'm in no rush to fix it. So please get over it, and hopefully I will have it fixed in a month or so, provided you don't have any other unforeseen doctor's appointments.

Love,
Katie

Oh my! Poor Jetta! My jeep started spitting black fuzz at me through my vents about a month ago...some hose broke apart. And I just realized that part of the side of my door is peeling off. Our poor cars...tisk. :) I hope your jetta listens to you and stops falling apart!!
