    Out of curiosity, could I ask you what insurance company you're with? I'd like to avoid them. XD Hah.

    Also, sorry to hear about your Micra. Glad you're okay.
    My fear is dead. Ambition drove the hearse.

I was with perth through the broker which the mail said "economical" all the same company, now if i was still with the broker would i have gotten more idk? i got the value of the car but had previous car loan tacked on when i traded in my old car.

    Yup, I can see how the Hyundai would have put you upside down. Something like a used Versa might be your best bet for now, I've really come around on them.

    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    UPDATE on car situation. I managed to get a car now!!!!

    2004 Pontiac Grand Am! 226,000KM.

    I got lucky, one of the Mechanics aunt bought a new car and didn't know what to do with this one maybe sell it so the Mechanic asked me if i wanted it. Of course i did! Got it for $400 and all it needed was a mirror and that same Mechanic got me the safety for me at my work

    I know its not a Micra or even a hatchback at that but a car in decent shape for cheap!

    A certified, e-tested car for $400 is a freakin' miracle! Congrats!

    224k is on the low side for a 2004, too.

    That's a good deal you snagged -- small consolation considering everything that happened to you.

    My previous car was a 2002 Grand Am GT. Great fun cars while they run properly. The 3.4 sucks a lot of gas for a car this small even at idle, though. Seemed to be one problem after the other past 200,000km. Enjoy it while you can. For $400, you can't go wrong. Drive her gently at least until you get right-side up on your debt, and maybe you'll keep those GM problems at bay.

    $400....thats a steal assuming it works, period.

    that's well within the 'be thankful if it even runs' price range.
