Bad car news

Unless something surprising happens, I am about to become carless. When I was pulling away at an intersection, there was a loud bang/thump from the front foreleg. The noise, along with a jolt, continued to happen cyclically. The diagnosis, boiled down, is new transmission, which is probably in the ballpark of $3000. I'll hear back tomorrow after the shop checks around for replacement options, but even if they find an amazing deal it's 6 hours labor so the price is not likely to drop by much.
