Default Kitchen faucet with rust - repair or replace?

Pulled off my kitchen sink to try and fix a persistent leak in the center section, and this is the amount of rust I've found. Worth repairing, or should I just go ahead and replace it?

You don't say exactly where it is leaking but to be honest with ya, if you have to ask, it's probably time to replace it. I sure wouldn't want to expend my energy re-installing that.

It is likely repairable but if your time is worth anything go buy a single lever unit, you just need one with the plate that hides the other holes.

Corrosion happens ! Sometimes you have to just replace ... Remember to recycle the old one, so it can be put to good use.
