Hi Fracamac - was the £300 for just belts or a fix of valves, etc. I suggest you get an estimate for the overall repair and then decide if the car is worth repairing. Asssuming your car was worth £700-900 and it cost 5 or 6 hundred to fix it may not be cost effective. It is surprising how many modern cars end up this way - it's all about repair and maintenance costs.

Acording to Parkers on-line your car is worth between £400 and £700
