Is It Worth Repairing Your Old Car or Should You Consider Auto Recycling in Denver?


November 2, 2018

Do you find yourself making regular trips to the mechanic, each time pouring more and more money into a car that just ends up leaving you stranded in the middle of the road? When will you decide that enough is enough, and that visiting the mechanic more than you visit the grocery store is probably not normal? You’re supposed to be able to rely on your car to take you from point A to point B without any issues, but instead you’re lucky if it even can leave Point A.

If you’re torn between fixing your car or junking it here are some things to seriously consider. Think about the lifetime your car has had, the older the car the more experience it has, more road trips, more carpool trips and overall way more miles. Instead of prolonging the life of your car, adding more miles and continuing to drive with the risk of it stopping every couple right turns you can be in a newer and more reliable vehicle. Also consider the safety of the car. Do you trust your car with your precious cargo, can you rely on it to keep you warm while driving in the winter, or to take you to and from work and school without worrying that the car may or may not start when you get into it? Next, consider the amount of money you have spent on trying to keep that car or truck chugging along.

There are regular things you will need to do to ensure your vehicle continues to run smoothly throughout its lifetime and that will cost money, but if you are constantly spending hundreds of dollars or more to fix one thing after another, is it truly worth it? Actually, it is likely that you could have had a couple of car payments made on a newer and more reliable car, considering all of the money you have spent at the mechanics. Vehicles are not meant to last forever, they do have a limit to the point where they can no longer be fixed but, even then it can still be useful.

If you find that it is no longer worth it to take your 18 year old car or truck, that has 185,000 miles or more on it to the mechanic anymore, and you feel it has become unsafe and unreliable then stop paying money to get it fixed and instead call ACE Auto Recycling to come haul it off of your property and put cash in your hands today! You’re car may have no more grocery trips left in it but it can still do you good one last time, by putting a little cash in your pocket and it can do the environment even better by being scrapped and recycled.
