Wait, seriously? $9,000+ to get the car fixed? Fuck that. Just get a new (used) one!

My transmission has been shot for a while, so I think they threw that in there for a good 3000 bucks.

Body work is hella expensive.

(See after Josh's stuff for talk about new car)

Yeeeeeeoch. :(

Yeah, I agree with Vic. New used car time. If you can afford it.

Did they say if that was all body work or are there necessary things to make it drivable? Will it bring the cost down to just make it go but leave it ugly?

I think it is, they don't but they aren't aware of the transmission's foibles like I am. The only problem is I would have to sink some money into tires, which would be 100 some bucks for a car I'll be driving for less than a month, if that.

On the new (used) car side, I have to find a car that is both cheap but yeat in good enough shape AND new enough so that I can get a loan, since I could foot a down payment and I don't really want to buy another junker. So I get to do my research this weekend for a good car that will last a long, long time without breaking down. So far, I have had a reccomendation for Kia (from Frid, claiming that he's always had good luck with them and that they are cheap) so I'm taking reccomendations!

Agreed on the Kia reccomendation.
