Now my question is should i stay with the car? It its beautiful! the leather seats look just new, and the car's engine feels great when driven. Now its a bit fidgety on bumps (moves a bit). This would be my first car in general and feel like i f'ed because of it's history. What are you're thoughts on this ? Should i get rid of it before it's too late, or stay with it? thanks
