Get used to it. Get a cel phone and put all your friends, family and the tow service on speed dial. Make sure you have the caller ID blocked or they'll quit answering.
It isn't quite that bad, but it seems like it sometimes. On the second day I owned mine, the alternator went out. I couldn't begin to count the number of times mine left me stranded or failed to start in the morning. Everything from a simple bad starter solenoid to sucking coolant into a cylinder and busting the piston and cylinder walls.
I've owned mine over 15 years now and it's nearly as dependable as sonething off the showroom floor, so there is hope.
