Dealing with engine trouble is never fun, especially if the issue happens to be something major like a blown head gasket or a broken timing belt. Unfortunately, engine problems do occur periodically and if you haven't been on top of your vehicle's maintenance, you may find yourself having to deal with engine repairs in your vehicle's lifetime. Especially if you have an older vehicle, major engine repairs bring up the question of is replacing an engine worth it, or should you just look into a new vehicle?
If engine damage is super extensive, then you may find yourself having to decide between an engine replacement, rebuild, or a new car entirely if the damage isn't repairable. In this instance, you may have to weigh out your options and determine what is the best route for you and your budget.
When you think about an engine replacement as a whole, typically it will cost you less than a new car. However, you may consider the overall condition of your vehicle and its age to understand if putting more money into your car is indeed worth it, or if you should move on entirely and go with a new vehicle.
The answer to whether or not it is worth it truly comes down to your vehicle's unique situation. The best thing to do is to bring your vehicle into the experts here at Bavarian Workshop for an evaluation. We can help you better understand just how extensive the engine damage is, and what your options are. We can also provide estimates for engine replacement so that you can weigh the cost of the repair vs getting a new vehicle entirely. Plus, we can give you an idea of your vehicle's overall condition, and any other services or repairs that may be needed in the near future.
If the cause of your engine trouble is poor maintenance, chances are the rest of your car probably isn't in the best condition. In this instance, you may find yourself leaning towards getting a new vehicle. If you do decide on getting a new car, don't make the same mistakes again! Bavarian Workshop is here to help you properly maintain your car and prevent major engine issues from happening.
