Justifying Repair Expenditures Exceeding Market Value
This discussion is about someone who knowingly decides to repair rather than to sell, trade, donate or scrap their car. It's not about investing in a new transmission, and then, two months later, learning that the radiator and water pump are shot too, and replacing these as well. In other words, this isn't about being nickel and dimed, but, rather, on consciously deciding to spend something more than the retail value of the car, for repairs.
Shifty, maybe this discussion should also be included in the Maintenance and Repair board, if you think that's appropriate.
