Hello all. I've gotten to a point where my car is 7 years old with 112,000 miles. I would like to make it last longer but lately the power just isn't the same and seems sluggish often. In addition, it just seems like more and more parts are needing to be replaced and $500 services numerous times a year are starting to become the norm. I just had a 3,000 mile service and what not and it doesn't seem any better. The tranny was replaced right around 60k miles. (luckily just under 60k so it was part of the warranty)
So my question is, what could I do to revamp the car to make it last longer? For example, should I replace the engine? Go to a level 1 kit? Or get the hell rid of it and focus on something newer? Does it even make sense to spend more now to save over the long haul?
Any insight or suggestions would be appreciated.
