In general, it's almost always less expensive to repair a car than to buy a new one. The purchase may include warranties and sometimes maintenance. Recent vehicles have advanced safety features. Buying a “new” used car is likely to cost more upfront than repairing it, but in the long run, when considering possible future vehicle repairs, replacing the car may be the most economical option.
If the repaired value of your car is worth as much or more than the cost of the repair, it's probably worth repairing rather than replacing it.
