With new cars costing a small fortune — average sales/transaction prices are now above $20,000 for the typical midsize family sedan, according to AAA — keeping an older car running for as long as possible gets more and more attractive. It’s even more true today, since the cars of the recent past are so well built. It’s not uncommon to get 150,000 miles out of a car these days — and the body will last almost forever, thanks to the superb corrosion protection methods adopted by most automakers.
But when the engine begins to smoke badly or just plain dies, does it make sense to replace it with a new one? Sometimes, but you should be aware that a new engine tied to old accessories and a worn transmission does not mean you’ve got a car that’s “as good as new.”
