Question about 1995 Mitsubishi Diamante
Is it worth fixing a blown head gasget. And if so how do I go about finding out if that is the problem without spending a bunch of money? I have a baby on the way and I love the car but it fills up with smoke so I cant really carry a newborn in that car. I have to get it fixed or get a new car. Which do you think would be best if that is the problem??
The head gasket job I had to get for one of my cars, cost $1600! Once the repairs start coming... they don't stop! Get rid of the car as soon as you can.
In my experience (I've had a lot of used/older cars), it is much better to get a brand new car. There are affordable ones out there. Go for a dealer that offers rebates to use as down payments, and also a car that comes with a bumper to bumper warranty.
You also DO want "GAP" insurance! I've suffered the consequences for not getting it. It covers the full cost of the car, should there be an accident and your car is totalled. I was still making payments on my car that I no longer had, and the new car I bought, all because someone ran a red light in front of me. Auto repairs eventually broke me financially and resulted in a bankruptcy.
New cars are definitely the way to go. They are much more fuel efficient, They are safer, have great warranties, and the only thing you'll have to do is get gas and get your oil changes every 3 months.
