the average lifespan of a transmission is 13 months

Wait, that can't be right.

Can it?

Of course not.

So why was my transmission fucking up this weekend and why did it leave me stranded at lunch today? Why did my fiancee have to user her car to push my car out of the street? Why is my car at the fucking transmission shop, the same shop it was at thirteen months ago, the shop I paid $1000 to replace my transmission, thirteen months ago? The shop that warranties their work for six months?


I'm not putting $1000 a year into transmissions, that's for goddamned sure.

Maybe I can get an older ZX3 to keep me going until I can afford an SVT.

Or maybe he'll say "I'll fix it for $700" and I'll go for it because it will be the practical and smart thing to do.

Or, maybe in a few months, Tandra's transmission will go out, since it's the same kind of transmission in the same engine in the same kind of car. I'm DAMN sure not putting $2000 a year into trannys.
