he said he will hold off doing this until he does more tests. I have scheduled an appointment with him tomorrow to see what all things need to be changed in the end. I'll post here. Thanks once again!

comment Should I buy a car or get my current one repaired?
+1 Thank you. To give you a bit of context, I first got a quote from Firestone - they told me it would take $1600 to fix these problems (break-down was $700 for the parts and the rest for labor and tax). I went back to my mechanic to see if he could fix anything at a lower cost. He told me that because I'm a student he would not charge me the labor costs and that he could get everything done in one full day. As for the upper control arm, they said that the ball joint was breaking off. As for the power steering pump, my mechanic said, he did not feel there was a problem so

I see. In addition, I also read that bumper masks are not supposed to be on for all year because they accumulate dirt etc. Are you aware of any other economic ways to address this? The auto body shop I went to quoted $800 to repair this (with a new bumper).

+1 Thank you for the detailed answer. Are you aware of any temporary cosmetic cover up tricks that I can use? I was looking at bumper bra/mask but am not sure if I can use them in this case.

Ah... I just hope it doesn't fully come out. From what was said about those rust paints, they mentioned that I need to apply it on rust so that it can go and stick to it or something though I don't completely understand the details of it. Thank you for your time.
