Kicking the tires

Published:   |   Updated: March 19, 2013 at 01:34 AM

My wife and I are very proud to have bought our first new car. American, of course — never owned anything else. But after we brought it home I wanted to check the tires. To my dismay they were made in France. After I composed myself I told my wife. I took the car back to the dealership. They gave me no argument and replaced the tires with "MADE IN USA" tires. It was the same brand — Continental. The car is a Ford.

I will always look the whole car over next time.
