Girl Having Difficulty with Her Top

My girl can't get her top up or down, and I don't have a daughter! She must be very upset that she was left alone for four months. I'm referring to this sports car that we bought in Florida last year and had shipped home. Unfortunately for us, she has two batteries, one of which is for the hardtop convertible which is not to be disconnected. We had our younger son drive it for us while we were away, but even then, he noticed the battery light coming on. The company told us to drive it for long periods of time, but we still have the problem. So tomorrow, the head mechanic of our dealership will be back from his two week vacation, and we'll set up an appointment for my girl's physical. This is the perfect time of year for riding in a convertible. It will be 75 degrees on Wednesday!

Hopefully they can diagnose the issue and repair it. We will have 79 tomorrow, and we had snow on the ground a week ago!

@DianneN I wish that the current weather would stay as is for a couple of months, I hate the heat.

@Juliaacv I love the heat. I just pop into the house when I need to cool off or go to my son's beach. El NiƱo will be giving us a much warmer summer than usual.

I hope it's an easy fix for your girl. Nice weather. 76 today and 75 tomorrow, then it goes back to the 60's, sun on most of the days. So it looks like spring has arrived at long last.

Thanks. I hope it won't be a major job. It's been so warm, that I've been in my bathing suit and refreshed my FL tan! Let's enjoy this glorious weather!

I hope you can get it fixed so you can enjoy your convertible. I saw a lot of them yesterday, when the weather was so nice here. I think there are more convertibles here in Quebec than anywhere else in the country.

We were able to get an appointment next Tuesday. Convertibles are so much fun, but impractical in rotten weather. Ours can't even have snow tires put on it.

@DianneN I am sure you would not want to drive it in the winter in the north. My husband had a convertible when our two oldest children were little, and they loved riding in it.

@AnneEJ If it wasn't snowing, we took our other convertibles out, but of course left the tops up and the heat on. They are fun in the warmer months for children and adults.

It is a lovely car, but in a rollover accident, or almost any other, the passengers would be seriously hurt or killed. My practical side would not allow me to own one, so enjoy it for me, and drive safe.

It is extremely safe. It has automatic roll bars and side, rear, and front airbags. My hubby only buys me safe cars, or I'd be sitting home all day. I do enjoy it and always drive safely. I'm sure you know one has to drive defensively these days. Many thanks.

@DianneN A pretty car like yours has roll bars? That's great. I had no idea that there was such a thing as automatic roll bars. So they retract and only show up when needed, like air bags? Cool.

Thank you! My hubby wanted me to have it. I had one like it in 2001. Love it, but that battery could be a headache.

I hope you can get the top up, without too much hassle. It would be bad if it rained in your convertible. I bet it would be fun to ride in it this week.

The top won't go down. That's an old photo from last year. If it's not one thing, it's another with us!
