Time for a Car-B-Que
$900 to fix my car. Both the power steering well and the pump need to be replaced, and that apparently takes a long time and lots of effort.
According to the blue book, the trade-in-valude of my 1999 Ford Taurus, in its current state (broken) is. . .$0.
The trade in value, assuming it is in decent drivable condition, is between $2300-$2900.
So, for a mere $900 out of pocket, I am increasing its worth by at least another $1400. Looked at in this way, I'm getting a great deal. . .right?
