I feel like I know the answer already, but wanted to get peoples opinions really fast on car maintenance vs buying something…

I currently own a 2014 BMW 328i with 80,000 miles on it that’s worth a little over $10k to CarMax. The tires need to be replaced and and I have this annoying little issues “passenger system restraint malfunction” it could be a fuse or could be something more serious, not sure yet. Either way, I’m debating if I should sell the car and get something new that is under warrant and use the $10k to go towards my first year or so of payments on the new vehicle.


should I replace the tires and just drive the BMW until it croaks?

I worry that BMW’s have a reputation for being monkey sinks, even though this one so far has been not a huge issue. However, I worry about larger problems as the miles get higher.

The crappy thing is auto interest rates have skyrocketed in the last 6 months 🙁


What’s the play here?
