In the last 3 months we have put $2,000 in the car. Now it is shuddering and shaking when we drive it. We would prefer not to buy a newer car but I'm wondering if the age, mileage and recent cost of repairs are worth it. What do you think? Thank you. It's a 2006 mercury Monterey with 85,000 miles. We drive about 10 miles a day.
My car has 85000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
