RIP - My car

Today my car has officially been declared dead.

On Sunday, the automatic gearbox started making problems. I had it checked by the garage today and they told me that the only way to fix it is doing a revision or replacement of the gearbox. The cost of both options is more than the value of the car.

The dealer told me that I can have it recycled but that the car in this condition has no economic value because there is so much offer in older cars because of the Schrottpraemien.

I have found some recyclers (Autoverwertungen) on the net that recycle for free but do they also offer money for a car?

Re: RIP - My car

Try selling your car on Ricardo and state the exact problems. I had issues with mine where the cost of repair was more than the car... in the end I got a grand for it. Really depends on the type/condition of the car.
