My Car

I did say initially that I would post about random garbage sometimes so here we go; my car is frustrating me beyond belief. Broke down on the highway, got towed to a mechanic who "fixes" it and then it works for 2 days after which it doesn't start. Get it towed back to the mechanic and he takes a look at it but can't find a problem, tells me to take it to an auto-electrician as it's probably a wiring problem. Somehow the car magically turns on as soon as I try to show him the problem - I give it a few more tries and every time I turned the key it turned on perfectly. So I decide to drive home thinking all is well, so far so good. The next day (today) I turn the key and it won't start. SIGH! Guess I'll have to take it back tomorrow... hoping I won't have to pay for a tow.

  1. Yeah, when a car starts to get to that point its better to just trade it in.

  3. He didn't charge you? Surprised. Most places charge you, especially since it miraculously started in HIS shop!

  4. Allen's right, you should probably trade it in if it's breaking down and won't reliably start.

  13. yeah it's always hard weighing the pros and cons of having a car. On one side it's convenient as hell being able to go anywhere , but then there is insurance, police, and all that other crap.
