Well, that sucks. Is it worth fixing? Always a tough question to deal with the issues you know or find another vehicle with issues you don't know.

3000 will buy a lot of oil and you can offer dust mitigation services on the side.

It's an 06 with over 150k on it. Probably just going to put the $400 it needs in transmission work into it and wait til Toni gets back from her business trip to talk about the plan going forward.

Car prices and service are so expensive now. It used to be you could buy a decent used car for a few thousand dollars. Emissions requirements made that past tense around here. Old clunkers are 3-4 grand if they don't have a CEL....crazy.

According to an 06 "what", 3 grand is a lot to put into it when compared against what the blue book is, or could be. Tough spot.

I just came back from the shop with a list of about 3500 in repairs my truck needs. It is. 2011 with about 250k miles on it. Might be time to tell the boss I want a new one.

Kinda like to get another 1-2 years out of it. That would put us in a position to have my car paid/almost paid off and keep it at 1 car payment. Also put our oldest away at college, with her own car, and I'll take a crack at talking her out of something thats got 3rd row seating.
