ok, here is my situation. I have a 94 ford escort that needs a new exhaust system. Looking around $350 for the repair. I was planning on getting rid of this car in January as I am moving and won't need a car, however now i am thinking of the possiblity of getting rid of it now instead. that would mean that in the next 3 months I would have to ride my bike or catch the bus to work each day in the winter... not fun.. but possibly doable. My question/need for advice really is this: If I do this repair do think I can recoup the cost of it when i sell it? or is it not really worth it. the car is fine otherwise, however it seems that repairs have been popping up all over the place. its kinda been ridiculous this past year. for any of you that have had experience selling/repair used cars, what would you do? blue book for dealer is 275, for third party its 650. Not really sure if this is before or after the repair. And guys, please keep in mind that I have very little money and am trying to save up for my move.
