The car that died on Saturday night is really dead--it needs a new engine. If it were otherwise sound I'd probably go ahead and put the money into it, but it's not otherwise sound: the suspension is shot, the transmission is dodgy and it's starting to have one little problem after another. So I've replaced it with a brand-new Honda Fit. It's a small car, but I have small dogs, and it's got an amazing amount of room inside when the seats are folded down. I'm hoping this means years of worry-free dog travel ahead!
