2008 XT Sport 5-speed
I know a car forum isn't the best place for this question as everyone will be fairly biased, but I'm not sure where else to go. I'm trying to figure out if I should keep my car or sell it. I have one of the 200 08' fxt sports with the 5mt. I've loved the car since I first saw it at the dealer, and it took me years to find one. I had to put the car into storage when I moved, and what I had planned to be 6 months of storage turned into 6 years. I recently got the car out of storage, and brought it to one of the best subie shops on the east coast, to have them go through it...well they found that the head gasket is about to let go...So the engine needs to be pulled, and at minimum the top end rebuilt. Not normally that big a deal, except my wife and I are expecting kiddo #2 in a couple months, and my wife is leaving her job. So we have been saving her income as my income will barely cover our monthly bills...That means the car will need to go back into storage, as I don't have the money to fix it at the moment...I'm afraid that it is going to be years before it comes out of storage again, and who knows what other issues it will develop. I don't want to lose this car, I love it, but am I just being stupid and slowly killing a great car by letting it sit instead of just selling it?
