I think it is leaking oil from one of the head gaskets but I am not 100% sure. I am debating what to do with it since I really need something bigger and don't have the time to fix any of the problems and I don't think its worth paying someone else to do the work. Any suggestions?
Sell it yourself? You're never going to get full market value when you trade it in - the dealership has to lowball you so they can make some money on the deal.
