I put new tires on this thing this year. It has new breaks, but the transmission went out and that plus a few other issues like the timing belt change will cost more than it is worth. Does anyone have a frugal way to dispose of a car, should I sell it for scrap? donate it ?
I have driven that thing for 13 years and am sorry to say goodbye to it :)
Maybe not THE most frugal thing to do (and the tax writeoff will only help you if you itemize), but I would probably donate it just to get it out of my hair, unless I could figure out a pretty easy way to do something else. We looked at selling our last needs-work-or-it's-dead car on Craigslist and I figured we might get $500 for it after we cleaned everything up and took pictures and sifted through a ton of buyers and etc. etc. and we had a new baby and that sounded like a giant pain in the butt. But ymmv.
