I am torn over whether to keep my 1997 Honda Civic with 150,000 miles, still in basically good shape though the paint job is a disaster and it’s getting slightly worse mileage than it used to (I recently had a tune-up and that didn’t help), or sell it and take my grandfather’s 2001 Buick LeSabre with 75,000 miles. The LeSabre has been in New England, garage-kept its whole life, and it’s in good condition except for leaky rear shocks.
Either car I want to keep running as long as possible to save up for the next car. Which is a better bet? Is the LeSabre worth the trade-off in gas mileage? I only drive about 7,500 miles/year, mostly city driving.
