plain jane Posted June 24, 2012 Share Posted June 24, 2012 We have an 8yo import mini-van (I can PM you exact year/model if you need but prefer to keep details to a minimum). It currently has 125,000miles and even though we've maintained it fairly well it has a few problems. 1. Oil leak- has been present for a couple years now. 2 separate places have told us that it's a $1000 fix, not NECESSARY, but no way to do it for cheaper due to location of leak. 2. Tranny issues are cropping up. Again, we're servicing what we can but likely in the next 6mos will need a new transmission. 3..Needs 4 new tires as the current tires are 4 years old. Altogether this is going to cost us give or take $4500 to fix this 8 year old vehicle. :willy_nilly: It's a matter of time before the brakes will need to be done (we haven't had them done in a long time) and who knows what else. :tongue_smilie: Given the mileage, would you just repair or start looking to ditch this and get another?
