My 17 year old VW Passat is on life support. Just worn out, has a month left before inspection and emissions expire- it can't pass either one without thousands in repairs. I would rather spend repair money on a new car. Should I squeeze life out of the VW and use Uber for the next 30 days for a BF deal on a new car, or go ahead and buy now?
Don't care about make/model, am going for reliability and a great deal.
I am leaning to a new car, targeting the 2016 models as excess inventory. Won't need a workhorse, estimated 7k-8k/year in mileage. Looking at sedans in the $20-$30k range. I don't need financing, will pay cash. Don't know if I can hold out another 2 months but if it's significantly less I would consider it.
