The Question Club
I have a 91 Geo Prizm. I went over a rather large curb on Monday night and managed to pop my front passenger tire and shear off my shock mount. According to the mechanic, the car needs an entire new shocks system. It’s about $500 all told. I've already replaced the radiator system and put new tires on it this year. So lots of money spent on it. |
I’m considering selling my Geo for parts and then using that money towards a new car. Thing is, unless I time it really well and manage to do both on the same day, I’ll be carless for a few days, and that means no work, and that’s a pretty big problem. And it breaks my heart to even consider selling it as an option, I love that car to death and I’d love to keep it but I am in enough debt.
Buuuttt maybe if I replace the shocks, then I could get it to 200k with regular maintanence? It’s only at 123k now! It runs fine! Sure, it doesn’t have air conditioning and the rear quarter panel is a mess and a half, but. Sigh. I don’t know, guys. Help? Opinions? What would you do?
