Re: Sandy ... mom GAVE AWAY her damaged car :/ help analyze!

The car is now useless, you would need to tear down every mechanical component (tranny, engine) and clean replace. Also every electrical part is now shot. Likely would cost you more than the car cost new to 'properly' repair it. Even a bandaid approach would be more than buying a good used car, plus the nickle and dimeing or should I say the $100/$1000 repairs that will come up every few weeks. Let alone the smell.....

the market is going to be flooded with bad cars for the foreseeable future. (pun intended) I wouldn't trust a used car around here for the next 5 years, and even "new" cars are suspect.
