Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need a new engine if you can believe it in myn2011 X5 with only 68,000
miles ... Told its gonna be 8000$...... I till owe 21,000 on the note.....
Dealership will give me 13,000 for trade in as they found me some bmw
rebates if I get into the new hybrid X5.....
What should I do?

Go new is my opinion, your not gonna have the same desire for this car owing so much money on it, On a new car, down the road you can get a decent trade-in value from the car if wanting another new car.

Thank you ... Just so incredulous on how this could happen and put me in this position ..... It's my 6 th BMW,,, never had anything remotely like this occur....


All brands unfortunately have a Monday car that get out. Man still have to watch the robots, lol. Thinking on this more, I would take the deal on a car of your liking, maybe try to get $15,000 out of them toward trade by extras for the new car.
