That is always the risk with cheap cars unfortunately... Replacing a headgasket will cost you several hours of labour, plus the diagnostic time to check it - and as Allan says below there could be other, more serious problems. I've always run sub £1000 ($1500ish) cars, but on the basis that they're rarely worth paying a mechanic to fix - if something goes that I can't fix myself, it's probably junk time...

comment How old is too old for a new tire?
This is an international site, and we respect localised spellings, so both 'tyre' and 'tire' are correct. And I don't know where you buy them from, but I've never seen a retailer storing tyres in a controlled environment - they're usually stacked on metal racking around the fitting bays..
