Safety Reasons

(1999 Ford Taurus)
in Kansas City, MO on May 10, 2011
Good Morning,
I had my car checked out yesterday and I would like to know of an reasonable amount to get my car fixed. I am very scared to drive my car thinking it's going to fall down while I'm driving my car with my little girl in the car-shes only 2 years old and I'm afraid if my car does fall down we will be seriously hurt. I need to know if you could check out my car today and tell me exactly how much longer I can drive cause I cant afford to get it fixed or even a used tire of $40. at this time. Please Advise, my number is 816-200-8658. Thank You.

Whoever checked out your car yesterday can better answer that question better than anyone here. However, if the vehicle is bad enough condition that you are worried to drive it, THEN DON'T! It isn't worth endangering your safety or that of your child.

If you can't afford tor fix the car, I recommend you contact your church or some other charitable organization for help. There are many churches that maintain "Vehicle Ministries" where congregants who happen to be mechanics work on the cars of needy parishioners. Good Luck

My Steering Wheel shakes when I drive past 25 to 30 miles per hour. It didnt start till I put air in the front tires on friday, since then its still shaking. I havent driven it much, but have no choice since it's my only transportation to get me to work and baby to daycare. If i can get a tire to replace the front passenger that could possibly help till i get some money to fix the whole problem. Im not sure of any churches I'm really not familiar with this area.
