Default Should I get my Aura fixed or look for a new car?

Hi, I have a 2007 Aura XE with 122,753 miles on it. Last August I had to get a new steering pump, then a new rack and pinion in November, a new steering pressure line hose in December, and then I just had to get the oil filter housing and oil pan replaced/fixed due to them leaking. So in the last 10 months I've had to get just over $2,000 in repairs on the car. When it was looked at in March the mechanics also said that the water pump is leaking and will need to be replaced, and that I need new shocks and struts. This would be around another $1,500 to $2,000 in repairs. I've already had the water pump replaced once after the first one failed.

My concern is that I will get the repairs done and I will still continue to have issues. A friend who works on cars says that it looks like there is an issue with the A/C components and that that could go out soon. Would it be better to just go out and get a used Honda or Toyota than hope that the Saturn doesn't have any major issues after putting in repairs for more than double what it's worth?
