First, let me say that I’m a Benz girl all the way. It’s just “me”. This has been my first bad one. She’s been a money pit. The trans is slipping, we thought it was a goner, but I have an excellent independent mechanic who serviced it & put TransX in it to extend it’s life.
It’s been one thing after another & unlike my beloved old S class, I don’t trust her. I actually shake when I have to drive her by myself. My independence has been eroded completely. I work from home & my car has made me a shut in.
All of that said, we really need an SUV to take the new pup to IPO training (a dog sport for which he was bred). We also have a basic econobox that is totally reliable.
We have no car payments & want to keep it that way.
Would it be insane to take the Benz to Carmax & sell it along with the econobox for enough cash for a used SUV?
That would leave me home without a car for a few months until we could buy a commuter car for dh. But, I’m as good as without a car now what with my Benz PTSD.
We do have to spend money on her right now if we keep her.
Am I insane? What would you do?
