Hello, This really depends on many factors, such as how high the mileage is and if you have already replaced major components. If you keep having to fix the same things, then yes, I'd say try to trade it in. You can still get some value for it as a trade-in to use on a new or used car. If it's at the point where it's nickel-and-diming you, then a car payment would not be too much more money and you would be in a safer vehicle. However, if you have already replaced the most expensive parts, then you may want to see how bad these repairs are price-wise, and hope they are the end of it. Bottom line is my instinct says this SUV will keep nickel-and-diming you, but I don't know it well enough to give you an absolute answer. Best of luck! CarGrrl
