USAA allowed me to get that nick patched for free at a
body shop. If I wasn’t happy with that, I could pay
the deductible of $250 and get the windshield
replaced. I decided to try patching it and then
decided I could live with that. So it has already been
patched. If it’s any consolation, it looked a lot
worse before. I may have mentioned that when selling
it to you because I think I could have still gotten
the windshield replaced at that point, but then you
just bought it anyway.

It can leak, but it always smells musty. The back left
door got crunched in while parked on Rae. You can test
if the door is making a good seal by closing the door
on a dollar bill at the top. If the dollar slides too
easily you can kind of bend the top of the window back
into the car while the door is open and check again.
It could also be AC-related.

That’s the faceplate reminding you to take it. If I
was in a bad area, I would take the faceplate off and
hide it in the pocket behind the passenger seat. But
now that the car is kind of old, I don’t know that it
