Re: Motor is shot...Should I pay to repair?
depends; how good is the rest of the car? Have you looked at the 200+ years? we have an 01, we like it pretty good.
But if the suspension, brakes and other is all good, then it might be worth it. One other thing; I don't know if I would spend $2K on unknown mileage engine and tranny. I would go with rebuilt/remanufactured, spend 500-1000 more and get the warranty. then at least you should be good for 100K+ on the engine and maybe even on the tranny.
