Just a Sliver

I went back to Tires Plus today, and the manager met me at the counter when I walked in. He knew something was wrong. Sure enough, I told him the tire was still leaking.

So he apologized, pulled it in while I went to Burger King for a Whopper and diet coke. I came back, and a few minutes later he walked up with a tiny sliver of metal. He wasn't sure where it came from, part of a tire that shredded or something else, but it was causing a slow leak.

I got the Prius back, and hopefully that's it. We'll see over the next few days if I need to go back. They've had great customer service, and so I'm not too annoyed. I can understand some mistakes, and it's the friendly, local touch that has me still going there.

Now I just need to clean out the bottom of the Prius. There's a pan that covers the bottom on each side below the front seats and the one on the driver's side is full of mud and dirt. That's going to be a messy job.
