Got to say, I am with ard here. 110k miles is a lot of miles for $21k. I also think that $15 is more like sensible money, even if you put the $5k in the bank for repairs. At $20k then a big problem,...

Good luck with the car.

Why not part it out? That might help lots of people fix their rigs. You could make some money instead of blowing it on a 7 year old write off then buy a proper one which has not been trashed.

Rig? Unit? Acreage?

Can someone translate for me please?

I don't fully understand but is it correct that: he has bought a write off and plans to fix it himself?
