I have a 2001 VW Bug, bought it 2 years ago this month. Everything's been great except for recently - when I put it in park and turn off the car.

Have a 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix with 176,000 (many highway) miles on it. How do you know when its time to get a new car or keep repairing? Transmission rebuilt at 150,000, new exhaust, & front brakes. Needs new sway bar. The last 12 months repairs adding up.
My front brakes were noisy and I took my 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee in for a look. What was supposed to be a "99.00" brake job has suddenly become a $600+ brake overhaul. The service adviser is telling me I need calipers, hoses, brake rotors, and pads. This sounds extreme for a vehicle with less than 50,000 miles. What do you think?
