As Vermont’s leader in used car sales, we’ll often see drivers who have reached a critical point with their current vehicles. They are frustrated, and they’re thinking about making a change. Yet, they’ll often feel a loyalty to the car that they’re driving, and don’t yet feel comfortable pulling the trigger. So, when should you say goodbye to your old car?
When To Say Goodbye to an Old Car
When the Engine is Going Out
The engine is obviously the heart of your vehicle, and it can often reward regular service with 200,000 miles or more. Yet, once it makes the decision to give you trouble, it will often be the beginning of the end. There will be eventual smoking, clunking, or worse, and it won’t stop until you’ve given more of your pocketbook’s contents than you’re probably comfortable with.
Auto repairs will sometimes have a way of adding up, and this is often when drivers become fed up with their vehicle. They’ll take their car for an oil change, but then be given a recommended service sheet with other fixes that push the cost past what they’re willing to pay. When it seems like the fixes are truly piling up, it might be time to make a change.

It squeaks and squeals loudly, and at this point, it’s probably also somewhat unsafe to drive. If your car has become an eyesore who robs you of your own piece of mind, a less-than-fond farewell might be in your future.
