Suggest fixes rather than throwing up your hands and telling people to buy a different car and your advice might even be helpful.
Yes, I am familiar with a novel concept of spending money to polish a turd. I did suggest fixes, which happen to cost quite a bit of money. Not sure what is your problem? This topic is well within the thread discussion. Get over it. Point is pick the right tool for the job. It will be more realiable and way easier to deal with down the road.

HPAutowerks, yes, you are correct. Radiator first.
