This is on the main page beacuse I need to reach my decision ASAP.
I hate cars, and want to spend as little money on them as possible. My Buick is probably worth $4k, and I'm about to spend $2k repairing it so that the engine doesn't get shot. Does anybody have a philosophy worked out about when it's no longer worth it to repair your car?
If I get a new one, it will cost $20k or so (Prius), so I don't want to do that either.
I guess my thinking is that if spending 2k can delay having to buy a new one for a year or two, it's probably worth it.
