Car FuneralsTuesday, February 15th, 2005
On my way to chattanooga saturday, the transmission broke in my car. Broke solidly into pieces too small to be put back together, even by toyota-certified technicians. So I'm now faced with the choice of getting a new transmission for $3400, getting a "used" non-warranty transmission installed for goodness knows how much so it will "hang on another year" or I can get a new vehicle. As the car has 200,000 miles on it, I'm leaning heavily towards the last option. I spent most of this morning carshopping, but sadly found nothing. One guy even laughed in my face and then slammed the door in it. Maybe I'll get a motorcycle? If you have any leads on a vehicle for me, let me know. More to come soon.
