After $1200 in repairs in the last 4 months, and probably twice that in the last 2 years, my wife has finally put her foot down and demanded that I get rid of my Passat. Having never sold/donated/blown-up a care before, I'd like to get some feedback from the auto experts in the forum. It's a '99 V6 sedan, with 130k miles. It's never been in a wreck. I've recently replaced the radiator, fuel pump, and fixed a cam seal. The driver's side door lock doesn't respond to the key (you have to use the remote, or use the passenger or trunk locks to lock and unlock the driver's side door). My mechanic says the front brakes are low, and the front axle boots need to be fixed. Engine and transmission have never given me problems. I plan on buying a different car from Carmax. I owe a little on the Passat, but I can pay it off out of my savings if I need to. These are the options I see: - Trade-in at Carmax - Ebay (with full disclosure of problems and liabilities of course) - Private sale (with full disclosure of problems and liabilities of course) - Donate to charity. - Drive car off cliff, jump out sunroof and parachute to safety. If anyone has any ideas on what my best course of action might be (in order to maximize my return on the car without screwing anyone in the process), I would appreciate the feedback.
