What is the best way to repair this Driveway

Years of neglect has taken toll on Driveway. While there are minor cracks that I can repair fairly easily, there is a patch of about 3 sft just near where Driveway meets road which has multiple cracks.
Would it be better to repair the cracks or remove that section and patch the hole ? If later, how deep do I need to go ?

You don't even mention of what material the driveway is constructed. No way we can answer with this little information.

Sorry for not adding the pics . Added now.

I also added a third picture for another (related ) question .

Question 2 -- The area where the Driveway meets the foundation wall has cracked open. Do I fill that with Concrete Mix Or cold asphalt ?

Best material to repair this Driveway

The driveway has alligator cracks and is a little sunk just near where it meets the road (Pic 1)

There is a decent size crack where it meets the garage/foundation wall (Pic 2)

There are a couple of small cracks too

What would be best material to repair these ? For the alligator crack, I am planning to cut out the area and pour cold asphalt

1) For cutting, I know a circular saw with Diamond blade is suggested, but can I do it with my angle grinder ?


2) Suggestions for cold asphalt -- there are so many different brands .

3) For the crack near garage (pic 2) , shall I use Asphalt or will stick do a better job ? The ones that need to be heated with a butane torch .. link below.
