+ woke refreshed
+ made the bus (even if it was the more circuitously routed one) in perfect time
+ mechanic figured out what was wrong with the car
+ it was a simple fix, and relatively inexpensive (>half the cost of the bill was the tow)
- the fix involved disconnecting my battery, and thus my radio from my battery
- the previous owners did not supply the security code for the radio
+ the mechanic can discover what the security code is by removing the radio and calling the dealership with the find-out-what-the-code-is code inscribed therein
- it will cost, at worst, another 90-100 dollars to remove the radio, call the dealership, replace the radio and enter the code
+ dinner tonight with good friends

So now I have to decide how important a radio is to me, in a car I hate and want to consign to oblivion. Normally, it wouldn't be an issue, but right now, the route of prudence would seem to be to cut out unnecessary spending in advance of next month's biggest-purchase-of-my-life.

I want a new car.

What kind of car is it?
Will you need it to commute in your new place? Is it just a radio or does it play other things?

We didn't have optras in the us as chevys but it sounds bad reading about on wikipedia. We have 2 cavaliers both of which would have the same radio issue. Mine actually went throught thhat when I got it at first used.
