What else can go wrong????

I definitely hate being a whiner, but something else has gone wrong for us. We were on our way to Galveston for a fun day (no medical appointments today) when suddenly we heard a thump under the car & felt the engine shift. Andrew noticed that we'd lost Overdrive in our PT Cruiser. He pulled into a parking lot none too soon because shortly thereafter, we lost Drive as well as Reverse. Andrew is a mechanic over 850 miles from home, but that didn't really do us any good at this point. We have AAA so we called to get the car towed to a Chrysler dealership. Once there we gave it to the service department & prayed it would be a quick fix. We got a phone call later that said the entire transmission needs to be replaced. That's about $2500. However, Andrew can do it for $1000 less at home. So we want/need a way to get the car & ourselves home. If you have any ideas (besides Google for auto shippers), PLEASE let us know... Leave a comment or something! Thanks.

WOW, Erika. Ugh that sucks. How about renting a truck one-way (it's $$, but how many options do you have??) and towing the car?

no advise for you but I will pray that you can get your car home.

In 2006, Andrew & I became one before God and family! Shortly thereafter we became 3 with the birth of Simon in 2008... Then 4 with the addition of Rachel in 2009!
