133224 miles, mostly city driving, automatic transmission
This weekend the car started bucking, problems shifting into gear, chugging, slight odor of oil, very slow moving. This morning (in my pf’s) I ran the Scan OBDII and there were no error messages. I checked fluids and they were fine.
I am at a decision point, get rid of the car (needs tires, front brakes and it burns a bit of oil each month (1-2 cups) or fix it.
I think I have fallen out of love with this car, has rust on it and numerous bumps and bangs and scratches but I am saving for a different vehicle and should be able to look at used cars this fall. (student loans now paid as of fall of last year, so that money goes for the car savings each month) I have not put any work into the vehicle at all last year or this year other than oil change and spark plugs and have not spent my car repair budget for last year or this year so far.
I have a history on this discussion list with this car.
