It has 196,000 miles and I finally got a large hole in my frame from the salt and snow from Pennsylvania. I bought it 4 years ago with 128,000 miles and I am getting a quote from the local junk yard to see whether it's worth parting out or not.

I am trying to decide if it's worth parting out, so I am providing a list of all things I have bought for it in the past 4 years.

Feb-11 $500 Front Loaded Strut Assemblies
Jan-11 $165 Battery
Oct-10 $120 4 Steel Rims
Oct-10 $500 4 Firestone Winterforce Tires
Oct-10 $45 Evaporative Purge Valve
Sep-10 $310 Fuel Pump
Sep-10 $18 Fuel Sending Unit Gasket
Sep-10 $30 Fuel Pump Pressure Sensor
Sep-10 $15 Fuel Filter
Sep-10 $15 Fuel Cap
Aug-10 $93 Driver's side CV Axle
Aug-10 $95 AC Delco Ceramic Brake Pads
Aug-10 $450 4 Fuzion Hri Tires
Jul-10 $40 Fuel Filler Neck
Jun-10 $18 Muffler Hanger
Apr-10 $348 Both Front Wheel bearings
Nov-09 $45 Front Passenger Caliper
Oct-09 $120 Rotors
Oct-09 $5 PCV Valve
Oct-09 $20 Serpentine Belt
Sep-09 $35 Driver side Rear Trailing Arm
May-09 $30 Transmission Pan Filter
May-09 $5 Fuel Injector O-rings
Mar-09 $80 Engine Mount

Mar-09 $50 K & N Air Filter
Feb-09 $120 Upper Intake Manifold
Feb-09 $50 Spark Plugs
Feb-09 $20 Spark Plug Wires
Jan-09 $85 Instrument Cluster
Nov-08 $30 Lower Intake Manifold
Nov-08 $60 Lower Intake Manifold Gasket
Nov-08 $30 MAP Sensor
Nov-08 $15 Coolant Elbows
Oct-08 $35 Rear Sway Bar
Oct-08 $48 Endlinks All 4
Jun-08 $35 Throttle Position Sensor
Jun-08 $60 MAF Sensor
Jan-08 $60 Lower Intake Manifold Gasket
Jan-08 $5 180* Thermostat

In total, over 4 years I spent $3,955 on a car I paid $6,000 for in 2007.

Feel free to give advice/ideas as to whether it might be worth parting out on the forum, on craigslist/etc.

You will, at the most, only get maybe 1500-2000 for that stuff. Do YOU think its worth it?
