Thats kind of the way we figure when deciding on big car repair bills - we have a 20001 Chrysler Town & Country van we brought new. Got about 91,000 miles on it. Filters, Oil, lubes are always done per the schedule.
Recently the check engine light came on - something in the auto transmission.
Spend a few bucks to have it properly repaired and wrote just one check instead of a check a month for a new one.
Many factors involved, but that's the way we figured was best for us in this case.
