It's my own fault. I can't kid anyone into thinking it wasn't. I just want to post the story so the other yuppies behind me can realize it's not the sport car they think it might be. I am still panicking because I hate asking my parents for help, even if I know they could help. I live paycheck to paycheck with some help from my parents, like I think many my age do in this hard economy, but I HATE HATE HATE asking for help money-wise. So if you are young like me (this is my first car) plan for emergencies. I only panic now because I may have reached my limit taking care of it myself. In short:
DON'T LIVE BEYOND YOUR MEANS.
Edit: Thanks for the kinds words from the everyone. It is these words of kindness that have kept me from buying a new car that I would mess up.
Edit 2: It's not a real "mod" per se, but I do intend on buying a new car, and my first "mod" will be driving lessons. Seriously. If you want performance upgrades, look to yourself. I have every intention of taking mechanics classes and driving lessons. I haven't decided what to do with the Trep...I couldn't bare to get rid of it. But if the future calls for a replacement without removing the Trep, I will buy an upgrade and keep the Trep...just because....
