Hi. I have a 2012 Volt with about 195,000 miles. It's been a great car, but the oil pump failed and the ICE has been declared done for. The engine will still start, but sounds fairly bad. Not good. Anyway, I've shopped around and can actually get a used Volt engine for under $1000 shipped. Problem is I can't find anyone to change the engines out for less that $2500. The cars value isn't enough to make it worth it unless I can find someone who would do it for around $1000.
My research indicates I could get about $1500 for the car as is. The interesting thing is I can drive it around town with no problems. As long as I don't run out of battery of course. I purchased a used car for my one day a week longer commute.
Anybody have any recommendations for my unique situation? I've considered keeping it for a while, at least through the summer. It's paid off.
