I'm at a cross road on whether to repair or replace my 2011 Mazda6 with 141,000 miles. Long story short is has rust issues and from what I've been told by dealer and going through Mazda corporate Mazda won't help me with this. https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru...
I have cash in bank to replace ($10k) if need be with another used car that is slightly newer. KBB book value is about $3,700 but the car is not saleable without repair because it is unsafe and won't pass a NC inspection. I also won't dump this car on an unsuspecting car buyer so that is not an option. This car with similar mileage sells on Autotrader for $6-7k.
Car will need $3,000 - $4,000 in work to replace the rear sub frame (too complicated of a repair for me). Rest of car is rust free and in good condition and has been well maintained since new.
Dump or repair? Thanks.
