    Well, gonna cost about $600 to get my car fixed. Not a good way to start my day off, but I figured that's about 1 car payment if I were to buy a new car.

    Intake gasket is leaking water in and out of the engine (thankfully it just started and it didn't cause any damage yet). ABS system needs something and the drivers side window needs a new motor. Way cheaper than a mechanic but $600 is still a lot when you're a college student like me.

    Very true. Usually when vehicles start needing maintenance like that, that means its time for a new car.

    He said the headgasket is fine and the water hasn't caused any damage so it'll be fine but it needs to get fixed now. He said he's seen way worse and the engine's turned out ok. I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero and Olds (and GM's in general) are known for leaking a lot of coolant.

    It's worth fixing for me because if I were to buy a new car, my budget would be about 4 grand probably, and my car's probably worth like 2-3k if I had to guess, so in a couple years I would just start having these problems again.

    No i hear ya, it makes sense. I just look at the overall picture which is, if you get a new car, there's less maintenance and wear and tear. Plus you have a service contract (depends on the company) in which you could get a loaner while your vehicle is in the shop.

    You're correct. My plan is to drive my car until it dies, and then by that time I'll have a real job and be out of college, and I'll be able to get at least a nearly new car. My dad has an extra Tahoe so I'm going to drive that in the meantime. He'll be driving his truck. The Tahoe guzzles gas though so I'm not looking forward to that.

    I would take Tanaka over Darvish right now. But both have been sick. I just think Tanaka will keep getting better
