Depends how much you like the car. If you love it and you don't want to buy a new one (and you can afford it) then by all means spend money on it. From a purely pragmatic point of view, this is an old car now and is likely to need some TLC over the next few years - accordingly you'll need to set some money aside for regular maintenance if you plan to keep it on the road. Far more interesting than a new car. That said, £900 is a lot for some 'attention due to rust'. What does it actually need doing?

A fine looking car from all angles, until the 2004 facelift. Destined to become a 'classic'. 2.0 diesels proving to be good long life cars with excellent clubs and spares back-up. Up to 4 stars.
