Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My girlfriend and I have lived together for 2 years now and we work different shifts and whatnot, so there has been a need for 2 cars for jobs to work out. This is her 2nd car now to die out on us.....it is a '94 Ford Taurus which seemed to be in great working condition until it stopped shifting into anything past 1st gear. We took it in to get it checked out and lo & behold....it needs a transmission overhaul.
This would cost us around $1400 to $2100 to get it fixed up. I am tired of spending $ on cars so my question is this:
Is the transmission overhaul worth it, at this point I am wondering if I should buy a new "used" car....maybe with 6k to 8k miles on it for around $8000 and just have a nice working car for a good amount of years. The Taurus has 150k miles on it.
Should I buy a new-ish car, or stick to the one I have and get the transmission overhauled?
