Have a '97 Pontiac Grand Prix SE, V6, 142k miles. Here is what the mechanic said:
- The rear struts are rusted through the body into the speaker area. He will not repair this due to safety?
- Replace 2 tires (quoted at $275)
- The lower control arm vertical bushings are loose/broken. (quoted $431 parts,labor,alignment)
So can I get this car back to driving condition? If so, how much do you think it’ll take to repair the strut issue that he’s not going to do?
Or is it more worth my while to sell it for parts?
