Help, im writing on here as I don’t have many men around who know anything about cars. so I passed my test a few month back and bought a car off a friend for a cheap price (£600), I know with it being a 10 year old corsa it would need a few repairs. since buying it I have had to buy 2 new tyres, a inside fan, engine fan, coil pack, radiator, coolant cap and something else which I can’t remember. This come to around £450. the other day I was driving home in quite bad snow, and I come round a corner (doing about 5mph) and my car just skidded into a parked van. We are going private so after I pay to repair his, I need: Bonnet , bumper, bumper reinforcer, radiator, air conditioner radiator, passenger headlight,slam panel for my own. Coming to about £1000 if I can manage to find second hand parts. Is this a reasonable price, and is it worth getting fixed or shall I call it a day with it being a cheap car? also, when I was driving it to the garage, the steering didn’t seem to match up with the wheels, however I don’t know if I was just imagining this as I had the bonnet raised on the right side visible through my window so maybe my mind is playing tricks?
