Fix A Flat

I got home yesterday afternoon and noticed my car was slumping to one side. The front passenger side tire went flat while sitting in the garage.

It was nice to have the car on a flat, concrete pad. Like many garages, the perimeter of mine is lined with yard equipment and utensils, so the space was a little tight for changing out a flat tire.

I got the tire changed in about twenty minutes. That process reminded me how well the VW Passatt is designed. The jack fits precisely onto a certain place on the frame, and it is very easy to crank the car upward. In a tight space, that was a welcome relief.
