Seriously... When will it stop?

Seriously... So last week, on my day off, my car decided to stop running. Luckily it was just the battery that needed replaced. I guess I should have known since my car is a 2001 and it had never been changed before.

Well then today... Oh today... on my way home my car was shaking horribly. I would look at cars when they passed me and the drivers gave me no indication that I should pull over but after talking with my Uncle Kelly on the phone I did. I stepped out of my car to see that I had a flatter than flat tire! Oh boy. Now don't get me wrong I know how to change a tire but ewe gross. And then out of no where, an angel... Well maybe not but close, a soldier from Ft. Riley was driving by and offered to help. I said, "no thanks, I've got it". And if you believe that you are crazy, of course I took him up on his offer! I nearly jumped for joy when he asked and almost hugged him but did show some restraint. He put my spare on in no time flat and we were both on our way. I didn't get his name but who ever he is, THANK YOU!

As you can see the wall of the tire is blown out about 3/4 the way around the tire.
I am lucky I didn't have a wreck
So the question is... When is enough, enough? Should I think about a new car or just wait for the next mishaps to happen?

Gracious, Christie! Maybe we all learned something from your near accident. I'm so glad it turned out okay and that you were sent a car angel.
