There are so many variables to your question. If you have a vehicle that is paid off look at those bills as payments. Maybe that $2K is worth putting into that car, that’s only 4 monthly payments on a $500/mo car loan or however you want to look at it. Unless its really beat up and you expecting lots of major repairs soon, I would keep fixing things. If you want a different car and looking for an excuse that could be it.
