Today, my car was found with a smashed window and a torn-apart steering column, in order to hot-wire it. The thief didn't get away with my car, though. The engine was in the garage, where I've been working on it for two days. FML

This actually happened to my boyfriend but he posted it from my account since he doesn't own a smartphone himself. he pulled his engine from his car to work on it (he's an auto tech student) and had been without a car for a few days. luckily he was planning on getting a new ignition, he wasn't however planning on replacing a perfectly good window... but thanks for all the comments guys, i'll be sure to let him know about all the support!

what're you trying to say? Wouldn't it cost more to get a brand new car, wouldn't that be a reason to repair the car rather than buying a new one? it's cheaper by your logic, which may or may not be true, OP never said what kind of car it is, so it's hard to say

#27-- I think #1 was saying it's cheaper to replace the broken window and steering column than the whole car had the car been stolen. I don't think he was questioning OP fixing the engine himself.

That's exactly what I meant, 27. I would rather have to fix my windows, etc, than have to replace my entire car. No, OP shouldn't be "happy" about it, but I think it's better than losing the entire thing.

@16, then you risk making your premiums go up. Some insurances raise your rates EVERY claim. Make sure to read the fine print. He's lucky the car wasn't stolen.

Well there would be no check engine light without an engine. The car in that condition wouldn't have the battery arched at all to power the light anyways.
