Car is a 2008 Aero Sedan with 212K miles
I had been planning to replace it with something later this Spring but have changed my mind.
I had to replace the Throttle Body early last summer after the factory original failed for the second time, $700+ cost.
I replaced the summer tires late last Summer because the tires were down to the wear bars, $600 cost.
I replaced the winter tires last Fall because the old ones were worn out, $400 cost.
The brakes are well worn and $300 of pads and rotors are waiting in the garage until the Spring tire swap in another month's time.
The exhaust system is falling apart and will need to be replaced, maybe $600 of parts.
Maybe I should have replaced the car a year ago, but with all this work necessary for safe operation or sale, I may as well enjoy the fruits of my expenditures by driving the car for another 18 months or so.
