My mum has a 16 year old car (Toyota Yaris, Automatic). She does around 1,000-2,000 miles a year just going to the local shops/town center. Her MOT has come up and its looking like new exhaust, shock absorbers all round, new tyres all round. We don't know yet how much it would all cost, however considering the age of the car is it worth doing? I suspect it would be around £500-600 to do this work. At what point do you scrap a car? Looking on autotrader they are valued at around £1,100 - £1,300 with a 12 Month MOT. Scrap it would be worth £150?
