What do mean insurance company?
What do you mean "it sounds like a 4 or 5 speed when its started?"
Did you get an extended warranty?
If so, they should take care of it if its covered by your contract.
If not, check with your dealer. Some give a standard 30-60-90 day warranty.
Was your car making noise during the trouble? Did you hear the belt come off?. Did the over heat light come on? Sounds like you should have pulled over a lot sooner than you did.
Sorry to hear about your problem.
Was the car previously maintained at the dealer? If you know where it was maintained, give them the VIN and they can look up previous maintenance done on it. If you don't knowl, you might call the dealers in your area and have them try the VIN anyway. Maybe this was a previous problem. Did you get a Carfax report? 26 days is a little short to have this much trouble.
