Question type: Maintenance & Repair

4 Answers


So after you fix it, are planning on selling it right away?


Head Gasket repair for your vehicle is close to $2K. Are you putting a new engine in or a used one?


If you plan on keeping it, you'll have to see what your better option is, but if plan on selling it soon, I'd sell it or trade it in "as is". IMO, You won't recoup your cost to repair.


Depending on mileage and condition your car is worth around $6500 if you sell it yourself.
