Our van broke down a few times and needed to be towed back home. After getting a mechanic to diagnose the problem, we received the bad news that to get it fully repaired would cost $4,000. It needed a new gas pump, suspension, brakes, ball bearings, and other minor repairs to wiring. Well, we didn't have $4,000 so we just parked it and began using public transportation for a couple of months. Thankfully that we live in the city and everything is close. We have been praying that God would reveal when and how to be able to get a working vehicle.
