I have a 1999 Ford Explorer. It's getting to the point where it needs a lot of big things done to it. The front passenger control arm needs to be repaired for $600, it needs a new fuel neck for $600, I need 4 new tires which will be about $800. I live in Michigan where we have ice and snow and with it, salt. My truck is getting pretty rusty which at this point is really only cosmetic.

All that being said, would you put $2000+ into a 13 year old car or would you put the $2000 on a down payment on a newer car? Our credit union is offering some pretty good loans right now with decent interest rates and it appears to be in our budget.
