Those seem like pretty mild fixes, I would just get them done. If something major fails, or its constantly showing problems then yeah I would consider a new car.

At 167k miles, it can actually still have a lot of life to it.  Cars can easily go upwards of 250k these days.  I’d fix what I need for it to run, ignore the body work – it doenst need to look nice to pass inspection… and keep on driving it especially since it’s just about paid off.

Ya know…as much as I complain about the heaps that some people around here drive, these are the kinds of things that make me glad I live in a state that doesn’t require inspection.  Why in the world would a hole in the tire well be an inspection-failable flaw?

Seriouslly $200.00 to weld on a piece of metal to fill the hole… That just screams rip off to me.

We are sisters from another mother! I had a Mazda Protege, then traded it in for a new Mazda 3 in 2009. I love it!
