My car has 223,000 miles and hasn’t had too many problems until recently. I just replaced my clutch yesterday at a cost of $440. This is on a car that is worth maybe $1000. I’m not sure how much I should spend on the car at this point. Before I took the car to the shop I told myself I wouldn’t spend more than $500 on it and the repair came pretty close to that. There comes a point when it is better to quit repairing an old car and get a new(to you) one. I’m not sure what that point is but I do not plan on making any more repairs to my car. I’m hoping to replace it with a van this summer so I’m not even sure that I should have fixed it now. I could get by during school without a car if I had to. I’d just prefer to get a little more use out of my car.
