It depends on how much time you have to repair it. It sounds like you're tired of repairing it so selling it and getting something else would be the way to go. It's hard to determine when to let loose of a vehicle that always needs repair.

Thanks tenspeed Appreciate your thoughts


Also, is the value you indicate trade-in (wholesale) or retail. If wholesale, you can mostly like get more by listing it on any of the MANY sites and "lists" and get more. Another thing to think about is just keeping it for those times you need a second vehicle or something to drive in the snow (if in the snow belt) or when you have to haul something or go to the dump and would rather not put undo wear, scratches, salt damage on your new(er) vehicle, especially if you don't replace it with another truck.
