What was the last car problem you had?

My car over heated and I had to get a new radiator and water pump but the good news is that I didn't do something to the head gasket??.. 1300 dollars later I'm on the road.

Well, the last car problem I had was with my old vehicle...my current car, the Correla, fortunately, has been very reliable...knock wood.

A few months ago the handbreak failed. Luckily it was while the car was parked, so the only disasterous thing about it was I had to sit in the car for an hour waiting for the AA man to come and rescue me (and that I had to pay loads of money for it to be mended) cause the handbreak was locked on, and I couldn't move the car!

I needed new brakes.


I ran out of windshield washing fluid. The biggest problem I've had in a couple of years was when a teenager made a left turn into the back of my car.

lets see last car problem. what could it be? could it be the accident i had in march right after my job interview, which i landed, along with my best friend?

could it be the same accident in march on a rainy day with a mexican bitch with no insurance, no license, and supposedly, no ingles?

could be. now for the hispanics who read this and get offended, fuck off! i am half panamanian and i can talk all the shit i want about the barrel scrubbers of the hispanic community and i live in fucking california! excuse my language but i believe there is still a little anger attached to this.

this bitch decided to try and beat me to a green light when i had the right of way on a rainy day and i drive an expedition. those conditions say that at 35 miles per hour on a soaked road with
about 5 to 10 feet of space, my ass aint stopping. my best friend was driving his car right next to me and he slammed on his brakes right before i did. he had to swerve out into oncoming traffic to avoid hitting her when she cut her left infront of us. i saw his car dip and swerve in the corner of my eye and then there was a blue flash infront me. i slammed on the brakes and even the the anti lock brakes kicked in the road was soaked fromt he hard rain and i slid and hit the bitch.

what makes it worse is that she was mad at me. then she had some friends who showed up in another car and they were talking in spanish, not expecting me to understand but i did and spoke right back to the bitches, in spanish. i let them know that i knew what they were saying and that they better watch it cause i was pissed the fuck off.

if my friend wasnt there i would be been in jail for kicking her lying ass. when the cops came she tried to say that i was speeding and something else i cant remember. the cop didnt believe her no way but i was extra pissed because she had the nerve to lie. my god i could have just choked her right there. the cops were cool though and they towed the car. it wasnt even her car, it was her neighbors.

to make matters worse, she was on her way to pick up a relative's baby. what would have happened if the baby was in the car and she pulled some shit like that? my god people are just so damn stupid.

if she had just waited ten seconds or less most likely, me and my friend would have passed her and she could have made her left turn safely because there was no one behind us at all. a group of cars came down that street about a minute or two after the accident. but no, the bitch couldnt wait a couple of seconds, she needed to turn right then.

that would be the extent of any valid car troubles lately. everything is fixed and the insurance covered it but we all know that doesnt matter. the damage was just superficial really. no
engine damage just the front bumper , hood, lights, and grill were messed up and that was surprising because i almost flipped her van. i hit the bitch hard. but the stress of being in accident, inconvenience having an ugly car for a while, dealing with asshole insurance people, then having to deal with getting it fixed is the real trouble. total cost was about $3300 including the $500 deductible. i say that was a car problem.
