More car expenses!!!

January 26th, 2009 at 10:12 pm

Took the 98 Sienna in for simple repairs. It never turns out that way. It needs two front tires and the right steering linkage needs to be repaired. All this in addition to the back door handle breaking.

The bill to do all this will be 875 if we decide to do this. It just never stops. I am leaning towards repair rather than buying a new car. I think we can get 1 or 2 more years out of the mini van. DW wants a new car plus one for the DD. I hate to spend the money!

All I can do is the best I can do!

    Yes, a repair is usually less expensive than auto loan payments.

    So sorry about this. I hate car repairs.

    Well, I decided to do the repairs to the car and keep it running. There is little body rust and the engine is still sound. I told my mechanic I wanted to make sure the car was safe. He assured me it was! So on we go!

    Well, it's cheaper than buying another car but it still sucks that you had to spend so much. But safety is of primary importance and hopefully it will run well for a good long time.

    Toyota makes a great product and once the safety issue is taken care of I think getting as much use out of a vehicle as possible is key!
