Should I sell my jeep or repair it?
I am new here, but hoping you'll help me nonetheless.
I have a 1998 jeep with 120k miles and the steering column shakes when I go over 55mph. Now, I can put it in 4 wheel drive and the shaking goes away.
There is nothing else wrong with it, and I have done routine maintenance on it.
I've asked my dealer about the problem, and he said it would cost around 4K to fix. I love my jeep, and as you can see I drive it everywhere. The blue book on a car like this is 2K or to a private party might sell for 3.5K.
I think the real question might be, would I be willing to buy a car like this for 4K? and if the answer is yes, I should logically fix it. If the answer is no, I should sell it. Am I thinking about this correctly? What else should I consider?
