My wife’s is fine, so Thanksgiving has not been cancelled. Anyway, that engine light thing translated to “replace the radiator, thermostat, and something else I didn’t hear because it didn’t matter at that point.” The estimated repairs, even from the place I trust, would blow through how much I was prepared to put into the car to keep it running. Now I have to figure out who to unload it on, particularly since it’d involve a tow*.
Personal anecdotes about getting rid of broken cars for money welcome.
*I’d donate it, but money’s getting tighter right now**.
**I might still donate it anyway. I should eat something before I make bad decisions.
