What is that car worth, after you've made the repairs? $3000?flymap said:
I have a 2004 Honda Civic hybrid with 210K miles. replaced battery in 2014 and always done general maint. Always been a great car but it recently failed inspection due to code 2000. Both dealer and trusted local mechanic say I need to replace oxygen sensor and cat converter. $3100 mostly for parts. I really don't want to buy a new car but not sure I should fix it either. Of course people are reminding me that other big ticket items could go next. Money is not really the issue. Either way I'm shelling out about $3K for fix or down payment on new but with new then I have car payments. anyway, looking for thoughts on what else could go next. have to make decision by end of Oct 2018 (inspection due).
"people" might not be wrong on future repairs. A 210K mile car is about used up.
