Hi. I hope you can offer some advice.
Just found out (from trusted mechanic) that our 2011 Odyssey needs a new axle, sway bar and motor mount, to the tune of $1250. We were also told that we are due for a new timing belt and water pump…$700 more. Ouch.
We still owe $7300 on the car. It has 125,000 miles. My husband looked up the Blue Book value and it said $5.8-$8,000.
We can’t figure out what to do. We hate to put that much money into it, but we still owe a significant amount. The paint job is peeling on the roof in places too. Ugh. We aren’t “car people.” If anyone has advice, I’d welcome it.
