I was going to ask if I could tag along for your appointment since our local dealer doesn't have any openings until October (!). But then I finally called a dealer out in the 'burbs and I booked an appointment two weeks from now! I'm surprised there's such a huge difference between places that are only 15 miles apart, but I guess people are lazy. In any case, thanks for motivating me to check! It hasn't been comfortable squeezing two adults in the back with the car seat.
I've been thinking about calling around instead of going to my usual dealer - although now that they've ordered the part for my vehicle, that may not be possible. I asked to be put on their cancellation list in case someone else can't make it. In the meantime, we're driving 'Bent's van a lot.
