Le car est mort.

Well, the old '94 Volvo has finally passed away peacefully in its sleep, after more than 15 years and almost 350 000 km. It's fixable, but the cost of fixing it is considerably greater than the car's residual value.

We will likely want to replace it with a less thirsty car; my inclination is to get something like a 4-year-old Mazda 3 with automatic transmission (at soul_diaspora's request!).

I have a few requests for y'all:
  • Recommended ways of getting rid of the old car, preferably receiving some cash for it.
  • Recommended sources for a vehicle, and/or for specific kinds of vehicle.
  • Recommended mechanics etc. to check out prospective vehicles.
What does the great LJ brain trust have for us?
