Should I sell my car before its big service?
My 2006 Kia Sportage diesel has 70,000 miles on the clock and is due for its major service, which will cost around £1000. Should I pay for the maintenance or sell and buy something else?
That's a timing belt replacement, not chain and always better to do the waterpump too. The car is probably worth £3000 - £4000 and with all this work looming it won't be worth much as a trade in, so probably best to get it done and soldier on.
