Our 1997 Saturn SL1 blew a head gasket and needs a new radiator. The retail repair cost is approximately $2,000.00. We are not having it repaired. It has 99k miles with brand new tires. I don’t want it hauled for salvage for just $200. A mechanic could repair the car relatively cheaply and resell it.
Question: How do I approach or locate a mechanic interested in doing the repair wholesale for himself for resale who would give me more than $200.00 salvage for it? I’m in the Washington, DC area. Or, is this not realistic to think a mechanic would be interested in this?
have the same problem?
