Tyre Troubles

So I picked up my new car yesterday (a very nice Peugeot 206) and today when I got in from town I realised I'd left my phone in the car, so I went back outside to go and get it only to be greeted with a flat tyre on the front right wheel.
**Not actual tyre...**
I was not impressed

Luckily my aunt and uncle had bought me a 12v pump and tyre pressure kit for christmas and I had yet to use it. So after a little looking I found it and used it to re-inflate the tyre enough to get me the 1.2 miles to the nearest garage. It only cost me £10 to get it fixed and I was in and out in under 15 minutes.

So thankfully I'm back on the road. I just hope nothing else happens any time soon! I cant quite afford it at the moment...

  3. That sucks man i know how ya feel. I bought a Honda Accord.... yeah shit car i know but all i could afford at the time. I asked all the usual =questions and even asked are all the fluid levels correct. They said yes. I drove it home and found the power steering fluid container was dry as a desert. I had to replace the power steering pump.
