It's not just you honestly. I bought my Ford for $1,300 last year and ever since I bought it it's $100 here $300 there. I've already well surpassed the worth of the car and then the other day I had an appointment at college and when I gave it the gas once I was on the road it was like it was in reverse. Now I take great care of my vehicles, that is if people would stop hitting me. I have been hit in one car twice. The second time totaled it out. The first accident a dude backed over the front of my Buick and the second a dude plowed his truck into the side of my Buick because I guess he forgot where his brakes were. *shrugs* So I bought the ford because it was all the money I had at the time, what a money pit it's been. Don't get me wrong it's a beautiful car and I'd love to keep it but now they think it's the transmission and there is a chain dragging noise it's making a lot, what does that mean? I was told the transmission would cost about $1,700. That is more than I paid for the car! if anyone is selling something around here that runs and is less than $5,000 please let me know. Around here is Versailles, mo area. They said the cadilldic converter is going out in mine too. So that would be about what....$3,000 total to fix all of it? Might as well find something else that runs if I can. I'm not that emotionally invested in it! Oh and if anyone has anything for sale like I mentioned above that's not a Ford please let me know.
