I have a car that I purchased for $6k. It drives fine, but needs a new computer, which will cost $2.8k. The diagnosis already cost $400. Given that doing this repair will be 46% of the car value, I am trying to consider ways to reclaim value for the car. The car is valued by KBB at $4k. Doing the repair only raises the value (good to excellent) to $4.9k
What options do I have to regain the value of the vehicle? Tax deduction, sale, etc.
