Well, you may just get your way with this one!
The front driver side CV joint on my Civic went bad today as I was drive to my parent's house from work. It happened in the same location as when my van ran out of gas - the Lawrenceburg exit on 275. I swear that bridge is f***ing cursed. I was close to the exit and thought, "Geez, this pavement is really uneven." Then I started going around the big loop exit ramp and my car was jerking to the left every so often, then the clicking, and I thought, "Ah snap, that's the CV Joint." Then it got worse. I pulled into an empty parking lot and as I was turning, it sounded like I was punching sheet metal. I didn't even pull into a parking space, I just stopped driving as soon as I was in the lot and out of the way.
Soooooo...The price of towing alone is going to wipe out my ADA funds, not to mention the repair and car rental.
There's a lot of bad words I could say right now.
I think I'll just watch my fish for the rest of the day.
