For any 4-5 years car, it is time to start spend money on major maintainance and repair. Be prepared to spend double or more when pay the bill. I remeber in 1999, there was a 1989 BMW 325
for only $3500 with only 135,000km on it. I didn't buy since I can't afford to spend $100 just for an oil change. Even don't think about the price will be double, put another '0' behind.
