Adam,

Is your car a manual or automatic? And yes, batteries don't do well in the winter time.

automatic

Pop starting would have been a temporary fix anyway. Although it might have been useful to get to the auto parts store!

damn that's right eh... next time I'll buy a manual, more control!

Manuals are for single guys with sports cars. You better stick with the auto family man. The kind of control you need is an extra hand to block projectiles flung from the back seat!  Grin

At least wait until the kids are out of the house and you are in a mid life crisis to buy the manual. Maybe your bitcoins will allow you to buy something really nice by then!
My wife disagrees!  We have two kids, a third on the way, and her car is a manual (and she insists on her next being a manual as well)!  Mine is too, of course.

Also, when the battery is completely dead, push-starting doesn't work.  At least, it never did for me.  I'm talking no clicks dead.

It was a joke. I don't know how I could have made that more obvious! Talking about flying projectiles, a mid life crisis, and getting rich off Bitcoins wasn't enough?   Tongue
I don't know, it all sounded pretty reasonable based on all the advice I receive from all the backseat parents around me.  Cheesy

Manual FTW.

Your battery probably bit it when it went low last time. Deep discharge is pretty damaging to regular car batteries. I've killed a couple myself that way.

i was thinking of buying a manual, but everyone told me not to, and i eventually agreed with them ... automatic is a plus for me, because it can be my wife's car when she gets her license.

the PT cruiser was a crazy good deal  70,000KM 4000$(without taxes), they got it from a trade in, and they sold it to me 'AS IS' no 60 day guarantee nothing, so i jumped on it!

looks better then a van, same amount of space, ok their like 0 room in the back seats, but my kids are 2 and 0 so doesn't matter... the trunk has alot of room

Yeah, used American-made cars can be had for dirt cheap.  Definitely an economical way to go - they aren't all that bad in reliability anymore either.
