That would depend on how much the cost would be, the condition of the car mecanically and the body condition. If you have the rear seal replaced how much longer will you be able to drive the car without any other major repairs. If it would cost say $800 to replace the seal and you can drive the car another year you can look at it as it cost you less than $70 per month which is a lot cheaper than a payment on a new car.
