      My Aveos achillies heel....times ticking (bad strut tower rust)

      Engine runs crisp and strong but the body is also getting a bit crispy in the wrong spots and that will probably be the end of this game. The pics are of a zero dollar band aid fix I did. I got a welding quote of 350 before it got this bad. Not sure if its too far gone at 60000 miles I told my dealership about this and they brushed me off... They got out of it because it wasnt rust through. Anyways heres the pics...Name:  20170704_183036.jpg

      My daily driver Aveo is rusting badly at the bottom both driver side doors. Mine is an 04 with 189000 miles. I understand your concern about putting a bunch of cash into it. Last time I checked kbb I think the trade in value on mine was like $400.00, hard to justify spending more than that to fix it up. I did the bondo fix, but a rusty bottom on a door isn't too much of a safety concern, if it were something more serious a decision would have to be made as to fix or scrap.
