Just an FYI I see that there is an 180E advertised on SIFS, asking 600 shipping. So getting yours fixed for 500 may not be a bad deal.

Hi Susan B., I have thought about that and researched SIFS and am watching several auctions on EBay. There are several listed but it doesn't look like they are selling at the prices listed if they are selling at all. I also am concerned that there may be other damaged components that may not become apparent until repairs begin which would increase the cost. I do have some decisions to make.Dyann

How about trading it in for 500 off a new machine? Is that a possibility if not I think it would be better to just fix it. At least its your machine and you know it. What can you get for 500?Nothing to compare to what you have. Just my 2 cents.Nancy in NY

Even if it is a back-up machine, I doubt that you can find anything with remotely close features for $500. Or even $1000. As Nancy said, you know this machine, you know the history and whether it has been well cared for. All those factors would be a guess if replace with a used machine. I think that I would take it to dealer, pay for an estimate, and opinion, and then decide. Good luck. Will be curious what you decide. Diane in MD

Hi Nancy. The dealers in my neck of the woods aren't really interested in trade-ins so I don't know if I could recover the repair costs in a trade.I do really appreciate all of the kind thoughts and suggestions this thread has generated. I may change my mind later and have it repaired. However it looks like my car is going to need repairs first --- UGH!Dyann
