Today we sold my broken down Contour for $1500.

The problem with cars is that it costs so much for a diagnostic. My car was doing some weird stuff before it broke down, and I probably would have had it checked out if it didn’t cost (at least) $80. Our current car is making weird knocking noises when it’s cold, and some weird noise like a window is open a little. Is there anything wrong with it? I don’t know, and we can’t afford to spend $80 to find out. If there is something wrong, I want to get it taken care of, but if there isn’t I don’t want to waste the money.

I need auto repair insurance. I have a Ford though, so my premiums would be insane.
