Just a quick update on the limited availability of parking spaces at the Framingham MBTA parking lot. In short, there isn't much parking spaces for commuters that take the commuter rail after 8am.
This morning, I noticed there was only one available parking space in the public commuter rail parking lot. This public parking lot is available for both monthly and daily commuters. This basically means that if your taking the 8:18 (P512) train out of Framingham, your fresh out of luck finding a space at the commuter rail parking lot.
If you are planning on taking the Commuter Rail out of Framingham on a regular bases, you should considered some of the alternative parking areas near the commuter rail. You are not guaranteed a parking spot if you sign up for the Monthly parking program. There is a two hour parking limit around many streets in downtown, this applies to meter and non-meter parking.
If you find a broken or missing meter you will get a ticket or your car could get towed if you park for more than 2 hours. Warning: The town is looking for additional reveue, and they will give you a ticket! There are 12 broken meter spots around the train station, and they are happy to write up tickets every day!
Here are some alternative parking areas around downtown. You will need to contact the owners before you park in the lots:
This morning I saved $12.21 by filling up my car at a gas station that accepted the Stop and Shop Reward card. Simply by using the Stop and Shop card and buying things that we needed every day, I was able to save a lot of money at the pump.
I was very impressed with the saving $.80 a gallon and when I saw the price drop to $2.49 a gallon I was very surprised.
If you shop at Stop and Shop, check out the nearest Gasoline station in your area and see how much you save just buy purchasing groceries that you need anyways.
Just got this notice for my 2010 Subaru Legacy:
During a quality review, we discovered that the plastic cover on your vehicle's ABS (anti-lock brake system) electronic control unit may have been cracked during the manufacturing process."
On October 7th, I purchased a 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium. The car is really nice and I am having fun driving it. I was lucky to get a great trade-in for my 2000 Subaru Impreza.
When the car hits about 1,000 miles I'll be going in for an early oil change. I suspect that it will happen later this week.
I tried to call the Bernardi Toyota in Framingham to let them know that I won't be getting the Rav4 that we looked at over the weekend. However, I don't remember the sales guy name.
He left me two voice messages in the past 24 hours on my cell phone but spoke his name too fast for me to understand it. I guess I'll have to wait till he calls me back.
If you are going to the Toyota dealer can you tell them that the guy that came in wanting to buy a car decided to go to a dealer that wanted to sell him a car.
