    Even my 12 year old jeep got to a point the maintenance was costing me more than getting a new car (so I did). And that was with every bit of maintenance being taken care of since I bought it new.
    I don't think I've ever owned anything newer than 1991 and that was the year I was born lol. Most my vehicles have been mid-to-late eighties Ford pickups, back when Ford pickups were still top of the market and completely Bulletproof. I still have my 1988 Ford F150 the chassis and the original engine block is closing in on two million miles I think it's about time for a new crate engine still runs like a top but it drinks about a quart of oil month normally when I get to this bad I just strip it down bore it out but the last time I rebuilt that I finally hit the .60 over mark and I wouldn't trust a street engine to go any further than that cylinder walls are too thin at that point I may take it up to a 351 Windsor instead of a 302. Buried somewhere out back in the barn I have my old 89 Bronco mud truck it's got a 20-over 351 with a stroker kit and a mild cam and a tuned fuel injection I think that'll fit nicely down in my F-150.

    At that price you'll be lucky if the car makes it home before the transmission explodes.

    Not Quite. if you know how to Spot a Good Car it can be done. i have never paid more than $1100 for a car before in my life, my most recent one was my celica and it only cost me $600. its one of the best running vehicles i have had in a while. where i am from its common to find vehicles for far less than average national Value simply because there is so many cars here. often times people will hock them for less than $1000 or trade for ATV or Guns/hunting equipment.

    it really just depends on location and the intuition of the buyer to do their research.
