Just had the turbo quit and strand me in the armpit of NJ on the 23rd. Towed it home to upstate NY. 2 days after passing inspection and having $600 in repairs + inspection for broken tie rods and something else. Now it needs Turbo replaced and driveshaft. Is this really worth it or do I scrap it? Already has a rebuilt tranny. That died at age 5 just under warranty! Now the car had about 145K on it. Will it live long enough to make this worthwhile? Altogether the repairs will run me around $2000-2500 with used parts.

    what is the value of the car fixed and do you own it? are you able to afford a new car at this time? 150k miles is alot and if repair exceeds value of car maybe you do need to move on
