Was your dream job becoming an auto mechanic? If you couldn't get your own car working, he probably made the right call.
If your position at that company was so replaceable where your boss could fire you without a second thought, then you dodged a bullet . Your talents were clearly not valued there, and you therefore had no leverage in keeping your position . Good luck OP.
Playing the devil's advocate... There are many companies that have high expectations for their employees. This boss does not know anything about the OP except that he passed the interview - but his actual work ethic has still yet to be proven. Therefore, of course OP was replaceable - the boss doesn't even know him/her! Perhaps to the boss, they were thinking that /they/ dodged a bullet. It's unfortunate, but no need to antagonize the boss.
<p>I agree, try and salvage with HR. Show any receipts related to any work done or parts bought for your car. Think about your boss too, maybe he was up to his eyeballs in bullshit and his immediate reaction was to destroy anything else that came his way. Dreams are worth saving, and from this point forward anything you do and say needs to be done with conviction in your word and confidence in your approach. BE GENUINE. BE ON POINT ALL POINTS AROUND. Goodluck OP, you've got this.</p>
