I have a 2008 BMW with about 40k miles on it. I drive sparingly now as I live close to work (maybe 3k miles a year). So far the best, but now it's time to pay the piper. The brakes are worn down, there is a leaking oil gasket, and some other maintenance things that need to be taken care of. The cheapest quote I was able to find these issues from $ 2500 from an independent shop. I've called around for quotes, and has had these issues verified with 3 separate mechanics, to make sure someone was not making up an issue. Unfortunately these things need to be done. Due to my sparing driving habits, nothing is urgent, but should be addressed within 3-6 months. I'm not a DIYer, so please don '
So at this point, I am wondering if I should trade in the $ 20-25k range (Accord, Camry, etc.). I'm only interested in maintaining the BMW OR buying a new car in that price range, no other options are really on the table at this time. IF I do outlay the $ 2,500 to fix the BMW, I'd do it with the intention of keeping it another 3-4 years at least. I "d feel like I'm spending time on it and I'm looking forward to it. Any opinions on which option sounds ideal?
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
