I’m usually full of sarcasm and would mention something about an Audi AllRoad or a V10 M5, or anything David Tracy owns, but in all seriousness it’s time to give up your car if:

1- You know your mechanics full name (including middle name) and his/her birthday, and you exchange cards on the holidays.

2- A common response to seeing you is “It’s in the shop again?”

3- You’ve spent more on repairs than it would cost to finance or lease a new car (considering full amortization)  

4- You say the lords prayer, while facing east and holding a rabbits foot just to start the car every day.

5- If you ever say “How far is it? Yea, it should be able to make it there.”

6-If any writer from Jalopnik has considered buying it.
