I will make this quick as I am completely and utterly and other words that mean the same thing-ly slammed at work. Anywho, the Jeep is ready for the crapper. The engine is dying a slow, painful, and quite loud death. It is $2500 minimum to put in a new-used engine. Is this worth doing for a 14 year old car? Keep in mind, it’s got new tires and a new top. It’s also not terribly efficient for either commuting (me) or errand running (Kelly). It is however, a sweet car and lots of fun.
We were planning on buying a new car as soon as we have more dough saved anyway, but obviously that will take longer if we drop $2.5 k (again, minimum) on the Jeep. Keep in mind, that we are a single income family. And that single income is not incredibly awesome in terms of dollars. And dollars are worth almost as much as plain paper these days.
If anyone mentions a minivan, I will seriously kick you in the junk the next time I see you.
Read my lips words- IT AIN’T HAPPENIN’.
