@SarahCF:  Oh my goodness!  Glad to hear that it seems to be under control, but I hear you on how annoying that must be!

I am starting to reach the “do I buy a new one?” point with my car. It’s 2005 but has 145k miles on it and the engine misfires for a mystery reason and needs work done on the brakes (not dangerous – just annoying). 

That said, spending $5k on the car to fix it over 3-5 years instead of a car payment and higher insurance, is still cheaper IMO. And it would give you a little padding for time to get a down payment saved if you don’t have the liquid cash now.

I am sorry about your cars, though. Can you scrap the other one and get cash from the parts? You can often get more $$ doing that than like $500 that a dealership would give you.
