I need opinions.
Me and SO both have our own cars. My currently has a car payment on it and its ends next month. He currently has a 2000 Honda Civic, he has had it for 14 years lol We aren't the type to spend for no reason, both cars work.
Until now.. his car has a whole on the driver side to repair it will be minimum 350$. A few months ago he spent roughly 600$ on car repairs.. and now this, also by December we would need to buy new winter tires for it. So we are looking at a minimum of another 600$ to be spent, a total of 1200 in a year on a 14 year old car.
Would you do the repairs? Or just buy a new car? We wouldn't by brand new, we would probably get a 2010. My thing is that I will just be finishing paying off my car and to have another car payment right away would suck.
