No, I'm not kidding.
Last car incurred half the trouble and maintenance costs over 243K miles.
An Audi 5Ks with an automatic!!!! no less.....

Car before that...a Volkwagon Rabbit.
First repair over $100 occurred at 160,000 miles.

Add the numbers...I haven't included tires...the only routine items I
were timing belt and belts in my figures...a transmission failure that
cost over $5,000 w/o the aid of junkyard is inexcusable.

I told you I expected a lot.  Maybe my expectations are unreasonable, but
from my own experience and the opinions of most others I've talked to...
well...they're glad it ain't theirs.
