Car Problems

So, Brother-in-law is in town to run in the Peachtree Road Race, the world's largest 10K race. We took 2 cars, Husband's family in his car, Brother 1 and me in mine.

7 miles down the road, we pulled into McDonald's to get breakfast. As we pulled out, my transmission died. Couldn't believe it. 2 weeks ago, just had other work done on the car, and here another major problem!

So we had it towed home.

Brother-in-law made it to the race and came in at 39 minutes, beating his goal of 42 minutes.

Just looked up the Blue Book value of my car. It's trade in value would be $2000 in the condition it's in now, and $3,075 if it were in excellent condition.

We were planning to get a new car, but in October, not now.

that sounds your not contented anymore on your car, since it just brought you problems..a family friend got his new mercedes expansion tank replaced and for now, he told me that part of owning a car is to spend money on car replacements and repairs...for now on he said that its important to keep on inspecting his car regularly...
