If the rest of the vehicle is in really good shape and you like the car then repair it. If there are other problems then I would sell it and move on.

Understand that you cannot think of this as an investement. In good condition this vehicle is worth less than $3,000 private party. If you like the car, it’s worth fixing, but that’s the only valid reason to proceed.
