    To be finished

    A: Can you give me a ride home after class? My car is finished.
    B: Sure!

    Hello native speakers, is "My car is broken down" a perfect variant of "My car is finished" in this context?

    Kind regards.

    No. Without more context I'd most likely understand "My car is finished" to mean that a shop had completed work on it.
    I am not a teacher.
