Default Let's play "Did I get ripped off?"

While out of state, my fiance purchased a 99 outback sport for xxxx. Since it runs, I told her to go for it at their crazy low asking price. Now I've seen it, I want to pass it on to the old pros here.


Vehicle is in AZ, was back East. I don't have a lot of experience with rust, but the car definitely does.

The question is:
How much is it worth knowing only the following:

Pros:
Starts up, runs clean. Everything works as it should.
Tires in good shape. Clean interior. Clean title, 2 owners.
Overall, looks like its in nice shape

Cons:
Needs break pads, possibly rotors.
Rust bucket (see pics)
Check engine light
185k miles.


I really got on here for advice on how bad the rust is (cosmetic, structural), what I should do to thoroughly check it out (pull up carpet? Anything easier?) ... what I should do to repair it (fiberglass/bondo or metalworker?)

I tried snapping the worst of the rust.
