Don't know where you had the tires put on, but they obviously didn't see any problem they thought needing your attention. That's what makes me think the car hit a curb or something. Sorry you have to deal with this.

I'm telling my wife I have her too spoiled. She tells her friends how she hasn't even had to pump a tank of gas in ten years.

Why has your husband not stepped up to check all this out and make sure your car is drivable ?

If I needed cash I would not be spending money on internet service and I'd hock my computer for cash to get my car fixed?

Boy, this is a great thread. I can't wait to hear more about all the crazy stuff going on. Will the car crash driving to work? Is there enough food for everyone to survive? Is anyone going to swallow gas while siphoning gas for the car? Are the babies going without diapers? Who is keeping the children? Where is that darling husband and father? I'm on the edge of my seat. This is better than the best television soap opera.

Why Thursday luv? Is that when you'll have the money to get the car fixed? Or is Thursday your day off from work? Or is Thursday when your darling husband gets involved?

I just gotta know - are all the utilities still on? Is the rent up-to-date? Are you into dumpster diving? Do you accept donations?

hahahaha, I thought I was the only one who couldn't take their eyes off this thread lol! this is better than The Young & The Restless lol!

Seriously, OP I think you will be fine; however, the best person to judge that would be you or your husband who can actually physically see the car and know its history...if you/he aren't sure ask the mechanic who fixed it or drive it to an auto parts store or somewhere and they'll prob look at it or at least give an opinion for free.

nope. the car showed no sign of it about to mess up. i didnt go anywhere but to my interviews and feeling out apps. so i didnt hit anything other than the little pot holes around the freeway and streets. no curbs, trees, cars, ect.

I've had my car kind of fall out of alignment. (I had adjusted something on it and didn't tighten the bolt enough.) It was to the point the tires were squealing as I was driving. Luckily I was only a few miles from home and managed to drive there without the tires blowing out, but they certainly got warm. If it's that misaligned, you're not going to make it far. If it's at least close, you'll be alright for a while.
