I have a 2011 Toyota Matrix S manual transmission with 64k miles on it. It is in great shape mechanically – I get it routinely serviced and it has never had a serious mechanical issue. However, it has a lot of body damage – front and rear bumper, front fender, rear passenger door and quarter panel and headlight – none of this was caused by one specific accident, rather a cumulation of damage, so I can’t put it through insurance.
My question: do I get it fixed or keep it as is? I don’t want to sell the car – I want to keep driving it. My main concern is that the rear door is rusting, so I foresee that being bigger issue in the future.
