I'm devastated that my Sebring needs a new engine and I'm unable to pay for it. What are my choices?
Recycle parts, junk parts, etc.

    Well, you are in a tough spot here because the cost of repair easily exceeds the entire value of the car--even if you buy a used engine and have it installed.

    I would say your best choice is to go out and by a good running, decent-looking 1996 Sebring convertible. You should be able to buy a pretty nice one, and even a newer year, for around $2,500. You could probably get $500 for yours and then maybe borrow the rest from friends/family? Or if you had a credit card with deferred interest payments for 12-18 months, you could do it that way.

    I don't usually encourage people to go into debt but if you need wheels for work, then that's what you have to do.

    What's wrong with your engine, or do you know?
