I took my car for its inspection a few weeks ago. The inspection is called “shaken” in Japanese. I always take my car to the same place. They give good service. A month before the inspection is due, they send me a postcard. If I take the postcard with me on the day of the inspection, I can get a free oil change.

This year, they also cleaned my car inside and outside. (My car wasn’t so dirty, but it needed a vacuum!) A few parts needed replacing, and there was a water leak, but there were no major problems. I was relieved, because my car is over ten years old.

Older cars tend to have problems, which can be expensive. The only problem I have is the key. Sometimes it doesn’t work. I tried changing the battery and it became slightly better, but sometimes when I press the button, it doesn’t unlock the car and I have to press it many times. Sometimes I wish my car had an old-style key!

Anyway, the next inspection is in two years’ time. I will take care of my car and drive carefully until then.
