It turned out to be something with the differential/transmission breaking...yeah....did you hear that cha-ching sound?
That's right folks,we get to buy the car back,
for about $1300.
Bad thing since that's a lot of money for us, seeing as how I'm unemployed and all. But it would have been a real hassle if George had to drive me to and from work so ehh, life goes on. As my Dad would say, maintenance is just part of the privilege of owning a car!
