What to do with an old, faulty car?


New member
So it has been almost half a year since my 1998 golf gave out completely, multiple parts are faulty, and fixing them would cost too much. I decided to buy a new car, but I don't know what to do with this one. Should i sell it to some scrap yard or disassemble it and sell the working parts separately?
I prefer saving time than getting a few bucks extra.

I think you answered your own question right there. Sell it to a salvage yard or post it up on forums/Craigslist and have someone pay you what they think it's worth to them and be done with it. It will go on to be a fun project for someone else or used to keep other projects running with it's parts.

Lots of charities out there will take the car and give you a tax receipt for your donation.

You just make a phone call & they send a tow truck to get it. Easy.
