My 2005 Ford Focus is nearing the end of its life, so I’ve been eyeing my ex-husband’s 2006 Saab that he abandoned in our driveway 6 years ago when he moved to Mexico. He now concedes that he won’t be coming back for it, so here’s the question …
Do I spend $5,000 on any used car I find on Craigslist with 150,000 + miles?
Do I put $5,000 into the Saab, which has about 70,000 miles but hasn’t been driven in 6 years?
I don’t know anything about cars, but a friend suggested I post the question here. Is it even possible to make the Saab road-ready at this point? Or should I sell it as a ‘project car’ on Craigslist? And just for more context … I don’t have a garage, so the car has been out in the driveway about 2 blocks from the beach in Florida… so no snow/ice but the salt air is a problem here.
Thanks so much for any advice!!!
