Repair or replace? THAT is the question.

You’ve got a 12 year-old car that’s been with you through the best of times. It’s safe to say, a big piece of your heart is in that car. However, with age comes wear and tear and you’ve been putting money into it to keep that car running over the years. At what point do you wave the white flag?

There are three key variables worth considering before you decide to “fix it or flip it.”

Repair Costs

Determining the expected costs of repairs can be a big deciding factor on whether you fix your car or let it go. If those repair costs are hefty, it’s probably in your best interest to put those funds towards a new set of wheels.

Taking your vehicle to a local mechanic and getting a professional diagnostic run is your best bet to get a handle on the potential costs, but when it comes down to which types of repairs will make the biggest splash in your bank account, several reign supreme:

Car Worth

Knowing the value of your vehicle can also help determine whether or not you should fix it or forget about it. Sinking thousands of dollars into a vehicle for repairs that isn’t even worth a fraction of the repair costs sounds like a poor business investment. Again, you’d be better off investing those funds in your replacement car.

New Car Costs

It’s important to take into consideration the costs of a replacement vehicle. These include insurance and maintenance costs as well as potential repair costs if the vehicle you’re purchasing is a used one.

If you’re not in a position to shoulder those costs, then repairing the car you already own — expensive as it may be — may just be your best bet.

When Is It Not Worth Repairing A Vehicle?

When repair costs begin to exceed a vehicle’s value, it is no longer worth keeping the vehicle. That means older cars and cars with expensive repair jobs may not be worth repairing.

It’s always a good idea to get an estimate from a mechanic and consider how much you have spent on the vehicle up to now to make your decision.

When Should You Replace Your Car?

There’s a rule of thumb in car-ownership called the “50 percent rule.” When the cost of repairs on your vehicle begins to exceed 50% of the vehicle’s value, it is time to change it up.
