Over the last week I’ve been driving around in my new car and I like it more and more each day. The seats are leather and it makes me feel super classy. All my life I wanted leather seats but I assumed that would be a luxury that I would not be able to afford. I guess I got really lucky! My car also has an auxiliary input for my phone which is great for when I can’t be bothered listening to the radio or if there’s a radio ad. On top of that, it’s a really smooth ride and I feel so prestigious driving this car.
It is taking some time for me to get used to the sensitivity of the acceleration and brakes. My old car seemed to brake a lot easier with less of a touch of the brake. When I press the brakes in this car I’ve noticed I have to press a long way down in order to get the car to stop. I’m not sure if this is an issue or not but I think I will speak to a mechanic. Ringwood has the most recommended mechanic in Melbourne so I’m interested to hear their opinion.
My old car was a very old design so there is a good chance the brakes were how they were because it was that particular make. Perhaps my new car is better designed for easing the brake rather than a super sensitive jolt. I just have this fear that one day I’ll need to slam the brakes really hard all of a sudden due to the lack of sensitivity and it will result in my crashing or something else really bad happening to my car. My car might need to go to the brake pad replacement centre near Ringwood to sort this out. There is a good chance that the brakes aren’t even an issue and I’m just being paranoid, but I think it is important to trust my instinct and get this checked for reassurance that it is in working order.
