Should I pay to Repair her OR should I put the $$$ money to buy a used 2010 Wrangler Sport????
Her name is "Chilli". I paid CASH for her in 1997 New & she has never been in an accident. She has manual transmission, has 140,000 miles. I have kept up on all Maintenance. Just got $1000 tire set.
Last week I was hit by a taxi perpendicular to the Left Front Wheel / Fender. The taxi was going 35 mph, I was going 10mph.
The Allstate affiliated Collision Repair Shop said the costs would be: $1500 for new front Fender & $5000 for Suspension work, totalling $7200. Allstate will give me $8000 to give up the car OR $5100 if I keep the car.
My question is: Should I fix the car (adding some of my own money) or put the $8000 into saving for a 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport for $19000 ??? Do you think my Jeep is WORTH fixing for the money, might there be other complications from this accident after fixing ????????
