The car is getting fixed up!
The garage gave us a quote of £360 to repair all the fails, and get it re-tested, which is good enough to accept, seeing as another car in the same condition as the Fiesta would be £500.
OK, we are still paying more than the car is worth, but I love the wee Ford too much to let it go. Besides, the corrosion is all on one area, so it isn't like the whole undercarriage is rotting away.
The car will be going in the garage this time next year when my mum decides to either get the Rover 216 on the road, or buy another car.
At least on the positive side, when I drive the car in a few years time, it'll have had some repairs done on it, so I won't be so worried about failing an MOT in the near future.
As for the front exhaust on the advisories, is that most likely a leaking manifold or catalytic converter ?
