Follow globalhelpers advice and get references to another shop maybe? OR maybe there are other major issues on the car that we are not informed of YET.If the car is in very good overall condition then it would be worth the investment. At that age and mileage , plus cost of repair , owners percieved value of car is the key factor in the decision.
