I've got a 2000 Beetle with 100k miles.
I'm leaking oil and need a new Rear Main Seal. I also need a new alternator. On
top of that there's about half a dozen other issues, including cracked
reflectors, burned out bulbs, exhaust hangers, and a broken antenna.
The car has relatively new tires and brakes, and is otherwise sound according to
the report I got when I took it to a dealer. (I took it to the dealer because
nobody else could figure out where the oil was leaking from).
The car is worth around $2500 and the dealer wants $2200 to repair it.
I don't really want to spend the time finding another car, and I don't really
want to spend $2500 on a used car of the same value only to find out it has a
dozen other problems.
What should I do?
