Depends on the vehicle but I’d look into replacing the engine

Then selling it in this market. I bought a car a year and a half ago for 20k and have put about 15k miles on it. Carvana is offering me 25k right now. If you replace the engine, maybe you can still get $3-5k more than your bought it for and cut the cost of the new engine in half.
Also, took my car to local dealerships and was told they couldn’t compete with carvana’s price. Carvana ships nationwide so they can pay more.
