    repair proposal exceeds the value of the car, until 3 days ago this extremely low mileage car ran beautifully, now it costs more to fix than what a trade is worth.

    I had several problems
    With thi vehicle. The water pump
    Was replaced 3 times due to coolant leak and now my transmission slips. I may need to have it rebuilt or replaced.
