      @MrJasonfromcanada Not true. My 1999 Toyota Camry has gone 386K miles with mild maintenance like oil, timing belt, brakes, tires, and common items. Please check your "facts".

        I read that car manufactures actually designed vehicle to break down enough in a 10 yr period because they want you to buy a new one ( now this was quite a few yrs ago ) probably designed to break down sooner now from the amount of complaints you see on line . Looked at GM own Consumer Affairs comment report section about their GM products , the 1,2 ,3 star given about their product was way more the 4,and 5 stars . NOT GOOD !

          Do yourself a favor, buy a veteran. the ''best'' car isn't always the best. And ''best'' can be many different things. New cars have best performace, but they break down like never experienced before. Old cars have less performance but will outlive the owner 5 times over if you treat her right.

              I disagree. There are some great paste waxes out there (Meguiars Ultimate). And as far as spray on waxes are concerned, theyll never be as good as a good solid wax or a paste wax, but Meguiars Xpress Syntethic Spray Wax is hard to beat in terms of spray on waxes, especially if preceded by a good sealant and a good paste wax. Use it once a week or biweekly and It will extend the life of the sealant / wax combo considerably.

                Almost no one wants a Toyota Yaris. I have a 2008 model with 137,000 miles. I replaced (other than tires, wiper blades) a ten year old battery, headlight and tail light bulbs. My brake pads are original and still
                good. It has been a fantastic car for me that gets 37mpg. I barely go into an auto parts store.

                      Scotty! What's the deal with VW? My wife has a 2014 Jetta TDI. She broke 2 coil springs already, the stupid bolts have hex connectors at the ends instead of conventional nuts and bolts with heads, and don't get me started on the DPF on that thing. I wish she took the money and ran during the recall.

                                                Hi Scotty!!; As usual, another great, loud & clear video with your wise advices from you. Definitely, experience is rarely an outcome of clumsy improvisation.
                                                Maybe, since you already have (us) zillions of followers around the globe, (probably from nearby galaxies too; who knows??😁), you'd consider producing/publishing a real "Hard Copy" of your easy to follow advices, as well as your refreshing sense of humour.
                                                Thank you kindly & God Bless!!🙏

My newer cars have lasted longer than my older cars and I'm driving my newer cars even more. My newer cars require less maintenance than my older cars. My 2009 Cobalt has almost 300,000 miles with no leaks and no smoking it was normal wear and tear it still running great. My 87 Chevy required an engine rebuild before 150,000 and I drive my Cobalt more harder and more often than I did my 87 Chevy. As for resale value, Chevy always done me excellent.

I feel like i'm getting nickled and dimed but i got a great deal on it, has a new trans, tires and soon brakes and want to get a toyota but i might as well just drive it.

On the other hand, if you need a quick touch up after a wash, the spray on waxes are good for that, as they are quick to apply.
