Our car died the other day. Transmission is toast.
The mechanic will not release it to us if we plan to drive it, because it is not safe. So we're going to sell it to them for scrap.
Right now, dh's employer is generous enough to let us use the car the he loaned dh for work, but that is obviously not a long term solution.
After four years of unemployment, we have no savings, and our credit is in about the same condition as our transmission.
