Hello. Being that this is not a mechanical problem you will need to decide what you would like to do. Either way you will need to get the title in your name in order to be able to sell it yourself. Once you do you can decide if you want to sell it and try to recoup your money. If you keep the vehicle you should get you your moneys worth as long as it gives you quite a few years of trouble free driving.
