I have a an 03 Pontiac Vibe base. I got it in 2015 with 88,000 mi. It's now @ 128,000, and it has been having some front end issues. I just had a wheel bearing changed. Now it's stopping kinda shaky. Also, the A/C is leaking into the floor board on the passenger side.
I am wondering if it is better to put the money into this car to get it ready for my son who is learning to drive, or is it better to sell it as is, and put that money toward another vehicle with lower miles.
Let me know if you have any helpful thoughts.
Thanks
JEV

What is leaking on the floor, pure water or engine coolant?
Pure water is a clogged drain.
Engine coolant is a heater core much more expensive to repair.
Look up the value of the vehicle at nada.com and kbb.com .
Get an estimate on all repairs.
If repairs are 50 percent or more of value, sell it.

It seems to be just water. Did not smell like coolant at all... Thanks for the input.
