=((( Sorry to hear that!
Awww... May I ask what happened to your car? $1000? Wow, that must have been a lot of repairs. I hope it can be fixed soon and that your car will be as good as new.
Why did it break down?! $1000?! That's a lot of money. What part was broken? If you can't afford to fix it, then I suggest you buy a second-hand car instead. Or maybe you can use public transportation in the meantime.
Something about steering column, fuses, and brackets, then the battery :( it came to a total of I think $989.. I had to borrow the money, this is a second hand car we bought it about 9 months ago for around 7,000.. its a good family car and with having a 3 year old public transport is really hard.. between 38 hour work weeks, doctors appts, etc..
