100% agree. I also bought the car 2 months ago with 150k on it. So it's 10 years old and the previous owner has completely neglected it. It looks like when he found out it needs so many repairs he just decided to get rid of it. I don't plan to get rid of it. I actually plan to be its last owner, or I might give it in the future to a younger cousin or something. But I like to take care of my cars and not abuse them and neglect them.
My next step is a complete body repair: dents+paint. I found a body shop that would do it for $2,500. Because they also have to buy some parts for my cars such as a new door, bumper mold and grid, then it would come to $3,000 for me.
