Your mechanic just hit you with a bombshell: to fully repair your old-faithful car, it’s going to cost you $1,800. You, like 99% of people across the nation, weren’t expecting to spend 1800 bucks on a random Wednesday. Now, you’re contemplating if it’s even worth it for your reliable, but dated vehicle or if you’re better off cashing out and getting a new set of wheels?

The knee-jerk reaction might be to just junk the car and the prospect of riding around in a fresh, new whip is definitely enticing. However, before you send your car to the great junkyard in the sky, take a moment and figure out if right now is the best time to not repair your car and junk it or not.

Should You Pay For Repairs?

More often than not, we’re told to “stop paying for repairs when the cost of repairs exceeds the value of the car.” That’s a pretty sound piece of advice to operate by, however, you don’t ever really know the costs of repairs until the mechanic comes back from running a diagnostic.

Here are several of the most common repairs that will take a BITE out of your bank account:

  • Engine Replacement: $3,000-$10,000
  • Transmission replacement: $3,500 to $5,000
  • Suspension replacement: $2,500 to $3,500
  • Catalytic converter replacement: $1,000 to $1,500

When faced with hefty repair costs like these, when weighed against the actual cash value of your car, that will make you want to call the nearest junkyard ASAP. We’ll say hold your horses for a moment though; is this the right time for you to buy a new car?

New Cars Cost Money!

Paying for that repair might take a chunk out of your next check and you might really want a new set of wheels, but take a moment and think about how much a new car costs. Taking on a new car (usually) means a new loan, a new monthly payment, interests, documentation payments, and potential changes in insurance costs.

Even if you go the route of a used car, you’ll likely spend around $2,000. Most of your repairs for the car you already have fall within that price range!

Weighing the pros and cons of either decision should look a little something like this:

Buying A New Car

  • Younger cars are usually more reliable.
  • Newer cars have more advanced safety features.
  • Purchase can include warranties, maintenance, etc.
  • A new car loan is a long-term financial commitment.

Repairing Your Car

  • No change in your insurance costs.
  • You know the car’s history.
  • No time wasted advertising and selling your car.
  • Might need more repairs sooner rather than later.

So When Should You Move On From Your Old Car?

Truly, there’s no definitive “time period” when you should move on from your car; it’s all subjective. Whenever you feel like you can part ways with your old faithful and take on a new car and new car payment, then by all means proceed. Perhaps you’re in a situation where it’s more convenient for you to not have a car at the moment? Then stop repairing your old faithful and junk it.

When Is It Not Worth Repairing A Car?

The general rule of thumb is that it’s no longer worth repairing a car when repair costs start to surpass the vehicle’s total value or a year of monthly payments on a replacement vehicle.

Should I Replace My Old Car?

That depends on the condition of your vehicle. If you're spending more time in the mechanic's shop than on the road, or you find that your repair costs are beginning to add up, it's time to sell the car and replace it.
