problem is, the ignition will only have battery capacity to run on. If your mechanic is around the block, maybe worth the risk to drive. Towing an automatic Soob AWD has issues as well. check the owners manual but, flatbed towtruck is probably required.

Considering offering him some beers, pizza and lotto scratchers to come to the car.

i have a desire to learn some basic car repair skills, but don't have much of a foundation of knowledge in it. some of the "easy" things people talk about here, when i read the description, i get totally lost. plus, no good place to work (no garage, driveway in on a slope), some scattered tools (never seems to be the right one). i need to take a class at tech or something, but never sign up.
it can be miserable working outside with limited equipmey, I did that some when I was younger. But, it isn't too bad doing most basic maintenance (as opposed to actual repairs). There are youtube videos that are helpful as well as DIY sections in the forums. Also, if you ask around, you may find a neighbor, relative or co-worker willing to come over and walk you thru the first braake pad change or oil/filter change. Especially if some pulled pork sandwiches with slaw, and some beers is in the deal!

(down here, I have to use brisket for a bribe)
