I just got an e-mail from a company

I had a phone interview last week.They want me to come in for a face-to-face interview. Problem is,the IT Manager is in South Haven, about 3 hours away. Since my car’s transmission is acting up, I’m leery of trying to make such a trip.Plus it would cost me about $80 in gas. The Admin Assistant says that if I can’t make the trip for some reason, she could see if the ITManager could come to their Bloomfield Hills office – that’s only about 20-30 minutes from me. So, do I admit that I’m worried about mycar, or do I roll the dice and spend the whole day driving there and back(as well as the gas money)? Opinions?
