    Fix the rust, put off the struts. Reassess in Spring.

    You can fix that rust and it will be back in 6 months unless you cut it out. I would drive it as is unless you really want something else. No matter what you put into it you won't get it out in a year when you do sell it anyway.

    We had two Honda Accord V6's of similar vintage that required very expensive repairs due to corrosion where the front struts mount.

    Fanbois deny but it's a thing. Make sure the mechanic checks that out.

    Crap, can't see the struts towers here. They are very clean, in great shape....
