Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Hi Pam, Is this a shop that you know really well, and trust their advice? If not, you may want a second opinion. If your Sebring is really dead, you could try going on the web to: www.nedlc.org/center/copc/programs/all-bystate.htmand you can find out who to contact in your state regarding low income car ownership programs. All My Best, Amy Mattinat

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Pam, Being that the car is worth twice as much as you owe, it sounds like to me it is worth to fix. Call around, get various quotes on a head gasket replacement, save and look into rebuilding the transmission, or installing an already rebuilt tranny. Back brakes are not too expensive if it is just a pad and rotor replacement. I would just comparison shop and fix the car, you are almost paid off. AJ Pierce
