We have two cars with 130,000 miles on them. One we really feel we need to retire, the other, we (and our mechanic) feel has life left in it yet. But of course!! just as Hubby and I have been slowly putting money away for our new car purchase, the car we were GOING TO KEEP crapped out.
Last weekend, out of nowhere, a bunch of lights on the dash began to blink in distress. Long and short is: $2700 transmission repair needed. But if we get it done, the car should last another 80-100k miles. After $2700....it had better!
ugh. ugh. ugh.
We were just starting to see the light at end of the tunnel with upcoming holiday bonus time, tax refund time, and our credit cards all back to a zero balance. And - hello! - Christmas shopping time is upon us.
