I'm pretty sure my wheel bearings are bad, and I'm almost positive my struts are bad. But whatever the cost it is to fix, I'm going to do it. My dad thinks I shouldn't put any more $ into this car and I should sell it. But I'm not going to sell a car that has an engine with no problems. I'd be happy if all I had was $190 in repairs. But I'll have at least $1500 if I don't fix my rust spot myself. But it'* all worth IMO since it runs like new

Well i have 118,000 on my car now, and i have had no MAJOR problems. Most of the stuff has been little. I've probibly only spend $1,000 dollar in repairs over the last 5 years. 200 bucks a year a'int to bad considering. I need to fix a couple of more problems, but that will only cost me about 200 bucks. I guess that'* 2004'* repair costs. It'* a 1995, so if something goes really wrong with it. To where i'll be spended around 1000, or more to fix it. I'm just gonna sell it and get another car. My car was a repo and had 60,000 on it when i got it. Whoever had the car before me beat the ever loving **** out of it, and i think that'* where my repairs are comming from. For example, if you look at the undercariage of my car there are big dents in the oil pan, trans pan, vertually everything on the bottom had some dents or heavy scratchs on it. I figured it was bottomed out reall bad one time or something. There were a few other minor problems when i bought it. But in all it has been a good car to me.
