Scarlett the Prius, continued

My beloved Prius Scarlett broke down on the freeway yesterday and I think I have finally calmed down 20 hours later.  Just got a call from Toyota that she needs a new inverter, which costs 2600$.  Good news is she is under warranty so they will pay for parts and labor.  Bad news?  The part will take 3-4 weeks to arrive 🙁  So I am going to have to make friends with a rental car.

The only thing that remains to be determined today is whether Toyota will provide/pay for a loaner vehicle or if I must get a rental car elsewhere and pay out of pocket.  That could be spendy, so keep your fingers crossed for me, please.


I’m going to miss Scarlett.  She and I have become quite the friends, I spend a lot of time in her (or using her as a yoga prop).
