I've had my indie mechanic yell at me to get rid of the POS when I kept bringing in a 10 year old car to do the usual things like flex brake lines, struts, shocks, and springs that fail at that age. It didn't add much to repair costs but it was a PITA for the mechanic.

If I had access to a lift, I'd at least spray every bolt and anything that showed surface rust with a can of Fluid Film every fall.
I live in Vermont and can attest to this. And, there are still some vehicles with exterior visible rust or even holes at the 10 year mark, depending on how much the owners neglect them.
