OK. The bad news. The transmission on the van needs to rebuilt. Good news. It did not seize up on the frreeway! We lost only the third and fourth gears. But the whole thing needs to be rebuilt. We are going to do that, as the van is our "service" vehicle, and has, indeed, served us well. It only has 172,000 miles on it, and thus has many, many more miles to give us.
And, the Sebring did well today, no problems!
The Caddy went in for its engine work. No idea what that will cost, but thankful, again, that it was able to get to the shop safely.
Our cash will dwindle, but I am thankful that we can (I hope) cover all the expenses.
This does mean that I will not buy a new car this year.
