Question Time for a new car or not??????

Hi All,

I bought a 55 plate clio 3 years ago with 36,000 on the clock, it now has 113,000 on the clock and has a full service history.

It has recently had a new turbo solenoid, the injector warning light has come on twice but since cleared and the alternator/electrical fault warning light together with stop light but has again cleared. It also has a few niggly other electric faults aswell.

The question is should I PX the car in for a newer one or take the risk that the clio will continue with only the occasional minor repair?

It is our only car and the wife uses it daily for her 60 mile round trip to work.

I think I should chop it while I can get some money for at and before it gives me a huge repair bill for turbo or injection pump or something along those lines.

Opinions welcome
