So you've been having all sorts of problems with your vehicle, you took it into the local garage and received the bad news: you need an entirely new engine. Well, either an engine rebuild or a brand-new one. Depending on the make and model, both can cost near to the same amount. The real question you need to decide is whether or not it is worth going with an engine repair or simply scrapping the vehicle and going with something new. Before you make the final decision there are some questions you need to consider.

How Old is the Vehicle?

The age of the vehicle is an important one. If the vehicle is old, rebuilding the engine might be more than the vehicle is actually worth. Now, if you have a newer vehicle, the engine might be under warranty (depending on the year and the mileage). Naturally, if it is under warranty go for the engine repair. However, always consider the age of the vehicle.

What is the State of the Transmission?

When looking over the engine, have the garage check out the transmission. These are the two big areas of your vehicle. The last thing you want to do is pay for an engine rebuild only to have the transmission fail on you. If the transmission isn't in the best of shape, it is probably time to move onto a new vehicle. Combining an engine rebuild and a transmission rebuild and you're looking at $4,000 to $7,000 at least. Might as well put that towards something newer.

What is your Connection With the Vehicle?

Maybe it is just a special vehicle you don't want to get rid of. Could be a classic vehicle or something passed down you just want to hang onto. When the vehicle is sentimental and you just have to hold onto it, it is an easy decision.
