VEHICLE STORY

Mid 2016, I purchased a white 1999 Honda Civic EX Coupé from a family member. I wasn't informed at the time of purchase that the transmission was slipping and grinding and that the vehicle would not pass emission regulations. The mechanic I had taken it to had a poorly maintained 1997 Toyota Corolla Classic Edition. The Corolla was in such terrible condition I honestly thought of just not having a car rather than owning what I thought was a slow, grandma's car. (To be continued...)
