The manual stops at 150K.

Does that mean that they never expected the car to last that long?

Why don't you take it into the dealer to see what they can do? At 2003, your civic is still new-ish and you shouldn't have to let go about it for another five years at least.

If there's not buyout, then it may not be worth it because you will have paid 8K and in the end not be able to keep it. On the flip side, if you spend 8K on a used car now, you can keep it forever.

Why don't you go with some el cheapo super reliable Japanese econo cars instead of sticking to American cars of questionable quality?

So she rented an Outback because she crashed her previous car?

Should have gone with an imprezza!

She accepted an insurance payout of ~400 less than you wanted. What percentage is that of the total payment though? If she totally trashed the car and received a payout of 10K, I'm less inclined to quibble over 5%.

Well give her a break. It wasn't too bad. So what if she got lucky, just tell her how much it was really worth and tell her she got lucky. Then forget about it. It's really not worth it to fight over this stuff if the damage is relatively small ($400). Your marriage is not worth these little fights that you are going to remember and hold against her.

$700 is too much for a rental though.
