If the car has decent snow tires, it might be useful as a winter beater with a minimal investment. If you really like the 9-5 (don't we all?), buy yourself another, lower mileage unit, preferably not from the rust belt. It doesn't sound like you should spend more than $1500 to bring this car up to a minimum standard. A good mechanic is also a palliative technician. He will make your old thrasher comfortable as you seek a replacement.You might be able to move some parts over to the new one as spares before it's melted down and turned into a Tesla in Valhalla.Posts in this Thread:
