If the mechanic at the dealer couldn’t find the turbo’s problem, how is an amateur like me supposed to do it? It’s not realistic. So I’ll just sell my other car that works & get 5-6000 dollars for it. Thank you.
Yes a car is just an appliance to me, but I thought maybe it would be worth 3-4000 for someone else.
But I was wrong. Oh well. Maybe I can sell my 7000 mile Chevrolet Cavalier instead for 6 grand (according to truecar)
Or drive my Chevy or Honda instead. The Beetle has broken A/C, damaged left headlight, broken cup holder, broken glove box, and so on. But my other cars are flawless.

(2) THE CAR RUNS. It’s only ~40...

I suppose I could return the plates to the DMV & eliminate the bill completely. Just let...
Alnost every car you listed fails to move, so of course you got them for $0
My car still runs (just driven thousands of miles crosscountry), so it has to be worth more than the non-moving cars you listed.
Due to unemployment I find myself short of cash. In a private sale, how much is this 70,000 mile Manual Beetle TDI worth?
The air conditioning doesn’t work (just outside air). The turbo stopped working ~20,000 miles ago, but the car still runs surprisingly well (not eating any oil or...
