Sell or fix?
I have never had such bad luck with vehicles than as of late. 4 years ago I sold my 97 f150 because the motor locked up, and I needed a car, it had 216k miles on it, and the only thing I ever did to it was replace a blown radiator. I bought a 2001 accord, and recently sold it because the transmission was going out, and I wanted something newer, and didn't want to fix it. During my time owning it, all I had to do to it was replace a blown radiator. A few months ago, I bought a 2003 Infinity G35. It had 138k miles, was one owner, and I loved the car. When I bought it, I told my fiance that with my luck, I would have to replace the radiator. THREE WEEKS after I bought it, I had to replace a blown radiator. Imagine that. So today, I was driving it, and it just shut off going down the road, and would not start back. Finally got it started AMD got it home, and by doing some research, my guess is a camshaft sensor has gone bad.
My dear other half is telling me to sell it and get something else. I understand his frustration, but I can only afford used vehicles, not a new one. My feeling is that I will sell it and get something else, and it will just break too, lol.
I am not sure what I should do. I want to keep it, but crap, I can't pour hundreds of dollars into it every month to fix something that breaks. I would rather buy an old beater truck that's cheap to work on, but I need a decent car for work.
What would you do, sell it and hope the next one runs for a while, or fix this one and hope nothing else goes wrong?
