But this is a spider! You are lucky. In Italy there is a motto:

"Ragno porta guadagno"

Translation in meaning:

"This spider is going to take money to you" :cool:

Have you checked your hood lately?

I am sure that is exactly what is going on!

It's been quite the year for wolf spiders at my place. I found one that was so large that when I disturbed it and it dropped to the ground I could hear its body weight hitting and hear it running away.
This one that disabled my car is pretty small in comparison. I have also seen some full on tarantulas but they don't scare me for some reason.

Hopefully it didn't deposit a bunch of spider eggs somewhere in the interior which will hatch one day while you're driving and flood the interior with baby spiderlings ... because that would be truly awful.

Best to just have it towed away at this point.

That happened to my 4th grade class. We found a black widow and egg sac and put them in a jar with tiny holes in it. A few days later, the baby spiders hatched and were able to get out and we were all swatting at them as they crawled on our arms during class. I would hate for that to happen inside a car! lol.
