Re: Time for a new car or not??????

I would sell it on.

Cars do reach a tipping point whereby the cost of repair starts outweighing the value of the car.

Plus, the fact it is used by your OH to get to work would indicate that any unrelibility is more than just an inconvenience.

You should still get a reasonable amount which will allow you to springboard to something newer & less leggy.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
