Today the engine in my 2000 Subaru Outback exploded. Without question, the engine is kaput (although it still started surprisingly). This happened 40 miles from home in San Diego. I had it towed to a local tow station ($250). Tomorrow I will have it towed to…somewhere…
Here’s my question:
Where should I get my car towed to?
If I park it on my street, I’m good for at least a week without tickets, but it would be another tow to get service or examined.
If I tow it to a service center…well first I’d have to find one, and second, I’m not sure what would happen then. Trade it in? Sell it as is?
The car has 170K miles on it, I paid 8K for it about 4 years ago. The body/interior is in very good shape. New tires! (of course)
Thanks in advance.
