Should I replace engine in Honda accord 2005 with 117k miles for $3k or get $2k for trade in as is?
If car is paid for I'd replace engine for $3000 rather than being stuck with car payments again. but damn, 117k for an 05 Honda, shouldn't even need a new engine that soon.
You should trade it for $2K.
just reduces fuel consumption and minor things for light engines.
The best choice would be trading it for $2k. You might replace the engine and end up incurring more cost during the replacement process. You can also experience more damages and end up using more money.
