I've just about spent a GRAND on car repairs this month. The first $200 was a window regulator that broke so the window wouldn't go up... okay, fair enough, it happens. Then big weird engine stuff happened and we had to replace control valves so the thing wouldn't die at idle. It's a little car with 120,000 miles on it but I hoped to make it to 200,000. But hell... the money I spent this month could have gone towards several car payments.

okay sorry enough yammering, here's the question: when do you decide when to trade a car in and get a newer one? how long will you drive an old car? how new a car do you look to replace it with?
