So your car breaks down, and you need it repaired right away because everything in your life, including your job, hinges on your ability to get around.The scenario I just described – and the urgency every car owner feels in such a situation – makes us motorists vulnerable to exploitation by unscrupulous auto repair professionals, and I use the term professionals loosely.If that is not the case, then here are nine tips for car owners stuck with an automobile in distress.For the duration of the repairs, use public transportation, rent a small car, borrow one, or hey, go green, ride a bike.Ask people you know who may have had similar problems how much you should expect the repair work to cost you.Five minutes of Googling produced a far simpler and less costly solution – switch on the dash but not the car, press the sunroof button and keep it pressed until it goes through a full cycle, and you're done.
