Need Car Advice - More info!

The suspension on my fiance's car broke and it's going to cost $700 dollars to repair. His car is a '99 Buick Le Sabre. He bought it from my uncle a year ago and it has been well-maintained.

His boss will loan him money interest free to get a 2004 Accura in good shape from the mechanic he goes to.

Do we put $700 dollars into the '99 or buy a new one? I'm torn because the '99 won't last forever and we might not have the chance to buy a car without interest again. I'm scared something els could break on it and it'd be $700 down the tube. On the other hand, a new car is a massive expense for us. It'll take a while to pay off (it's like 8k for the Accura).

***The Accura is priced at exactly the blue book value of $7,995 and it has 130,000 miles on it if that helps.
