Hmm, I say to sell it to insurance for the $5k. That covers the engine replacement for both parts and labor, and still gives you a chunk of change to spare. Plus, you already have a replacement.it's decision time on my car.
i can either:
- let insurance company have the car, and i'm paid out 5k, after loan is satisfied
- buy the car back off of them, and net ~$2200. buy back price is $2800, loan is $1700.
But if you're attached, get an estimate on the repair work needed first, like @Cepega mentioned.
