    My husband has a 2004 Ford Mustang GT with over 130k miles on it. He wants to get a new motor to put in it and I said there are lots of other parts besides the motor that will be breaking soon enough on a 14 year old car. I want him to get a car with less than 40k mikes on it so we won’t have as many car repairs. New motor or newer car??

    Well that of course depends on the overall condition of the car. If it has been kept up, then a new engine is not a bad idea for the cost. you are right though, there can anything go wrong next- a transmission failure would be another large expense, not to mention normal things like brakes, shocks, exhaust, power steering, A/C or anything electrical.

    This is a gamble with any vehicle. It all depends on what shape the car is in overall.
