Is it worth putting new rocker panels on a 1997 toyota corolla or time for a new car?
The drivers side rocker panel is almost completely rotted out to the point where i can rip pieces off with my hand. Im kinda worried about my safety in a crash. Do you think it might be worth replacing the rocker panels or time to look for a new car?

Rocker panels are not structural members of the car's frame. They just trim out the bottom of the door frame.

Definitely time for a new car! Your POS 23-year-old Toyota isn't worth the cost of repairing extensive rust damage.

Car has a unibody construction. Remove the carpet and check if the floor is also rotted out. If it is, junk the car. If not, sell it or drive it until the engine or transmission quits.

Really? If the panel is rotted then so are other parts you can't see
