Subject should read "Need car / financial / moral advice." My 2003 Subaru Forester (147k miles) has a coolant leak from a head gasket, a separate oil leak, a cracked windshield, and tires that are so worn they make the car thump driving down the road. Estimated repairs: $2-$3k. I had just come up with a six-month plan to save enough cash to buy a new car outright (with the Suby as trade) when this SHTF. Now I'm in a fix. As I see it, I have the following options: 1. Fix windshield and tires, clean it up, sell it to an individual with full disclosure about the issues. 2. Fix windshield and tires, clean it up, trade it in at a dealership which may or may not specifically ask about the issues. 3. Set it on fire and roll it down a hill. I'm not so sure #2 is moral. It seems to me that in a dealership transaction, it is understood that both parties are trying to screw each other. I certainly wouldn't lie, but should I offer the information? Thanks for the advice.
