Often times, when one finds themselves stuck with a broken down car on their hands, they go through a few stages. The first one involves finding out how much it will cost to fix it. If it is affordable, they go ahead and get it done. But if it turns out to be more expensive than the vehicle was worth before breaking down, they go to stage 2. This is where they put the car on their lawn and forget about it. This is a bad decision.
That vehicle is still worth money, and by leaving it lying about, you are allowing it to continue to depreciate in value. It is also leaking fluids such as brake fluid and antifreeze, which adversely affects the environment. The second stage needs to be different.
Here is a better path toward dealing with a permanently broken down automobile.
