I guess when you put it that way....Since I bought this car I figured I'd need to replace the cvt so back in February I ordered a lift to make it easier to replace(still haven't received it btw, maybe August or Sept).

I was gonna just build a gate to get into my side yard but I'd have to re-route my eaves drain pipe. It'd be a pita. I don't want to leave a $20k machine outside in the yard and don't want to pay $10 for each 2x4 to build a shed... So I did the sensible thing and bought a shed on wheels (toy hauler). So now I'll be set kinda. Providing the cvt hold up til later this summer. And I can find a cvt on the cheap.
So now in a round a bout sorta way I'll have about $26k in misc stuff so that I can comfortably/conveniently replace the transmission in my $1000 car if/when it blows up. This kinda leads back to why I don't want to blow money on my "cheap" car, I owe a bit of money now and want to get it paid off sooner than later!
Replacing the cvt isn't a big deal. I'd rather do it with the car in the air though.
