What's the cheapest car to own?
Consider the cost of maintenance and repairs -- and their frequency -- when deciding which car to buy.
Would NEVER have another Toyota. Their Dealers, in cahoots with Toyota of North America are by far the MOST DISHONEST Mfkrz in the Country. Toyota Warranties are NOT WORTH the papyrus on which they are written. Search the internet for TOYOTA ENGINE OIL SLUDGE FIASCO -- Millions of Toyota owners cheated out of repairs by Toyota North America. ....... HOW THE HELL DOES TOYOTA GET THE MEDIA TO KEEP THIS LONG RUNNING SCANDAL HUSH-HUSH!
The car that is used the most needs the most repairs. Some people are harder on cars than others too.
The cheapest car to pay for is one that you own.
Pick out a cost allowance for ins., vehicle, tax, tag, title, etc. To Fit Your Budget And Put The Money in the Bank Every Pay Day. Use the money to repair the vehicle you own and rent another as necessary. Always Make You Vehicle Payments On Time. If you are lucky you will get a good one to work with and after several months or a few years of making vehicle payments with no break downs there will enough to buy a real good transport.
Rich people don't have the trill of making the last payment on there Car,that the best one when it all paid up Make sure you have a garage you can trust. There all a waste of money,but you have to have one in most cases.
Bring back Saturn! A concept that flew in the face of Detroit so they killed it. Imagine a car company that treated people like adults, not teenagers, pimps and hillbillies!
Car from Hell,
To own anything approaching a working and reliable car would be like a miracle. After a series of seemingly never ending repairs and expenses I basically gave up on it. The car gets the mileage of an Abrams Tank slogging through a Louisiana mud bog and there are now so many things lit up on the dash that it looks like a frigging Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center. The list of things that don't work now reads like an entire Chilton's repair manual. I'm basically down to a lurching bomb that starts and stops, with the only luxury being a working radio and one window that goes up and down. Oh, and let's not forget the ' special plush' interior that includes seats that have enough Ace Hardware duct tape on them to wrap an entire family of Egyptian mummies.
I have been currently experiencing some very vivid dreams that someone actually had the giant cajones to steal this thing ....only to wake up and still see it in the driveway the next morning. Misery now has me torn between simply pushing the car off a high cliff...or just getting in, tossing back a couple beers and driving off the edge with the radio on full blast...and a smile on my face. Peace.
