When do you stop repairing a vehicle and look for a new one...
I have a 1999 Outback with 115k miles, the interior and exterior are perfect.
3 years ago we did a big $2500 preventative maintenance on it including the timing belt and related items.
I love my Subaru!
Well...it looks like the Head Gasket is going bad, the estimated cost is around $1500.
When do you say enough repairs and just buy a new car...don't get me wrong, I am not rich and prefer not buying a new car.
If I look at $1500 for all the maintenance (besides normal stuff) that I have had to do in 3+ years...that's pretty cheap...about 3 months of car payments.
What would you do?
