Two defining forces died for you. Jesus Christ died for your soul. The American Soldier died for your freedom.

"It's a lot easier to pacify a country when it's citizens can't shoot back" Gray Anderson, Mayor, "Jericho"

"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him had better take a closer look at the U.S. Native-American Indian."

Just the facts. I taught with guys who bought Corollas and handed them down to their college kids after ten years and 300,000 miles. I've owned a number of their trucks and never had a major failure. Just oil changes, brakes and tires. Most of them are made in the States and Canada now. Corolla, Camry, trucks.
Just about any new car built now should go 200,000 miles without major issues.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.

For the price of new vehicles, they should get us to Mars and back. LOL

"Should" being the operative word. I still have my 2010 F150 which has been somewhat disappointing in terms of reliability. Bought it new, now has 115K miles. Since new: New engine (warranty), O2 sensor (warranty), new driveshaft, ring and pinion howl (started at 70K), AC condenser, PS hose, couple of evap code repairs, rotted rocker panels (should have waited until 2011 aluminum), fuel door broke for no apparent reason, AC blend door in dash, radio volume control failed, leaky A pillar on passenger side (warranty). Can't recall another vehicle I've owned that needed all this stuff in the first 100K miles.

Now the original battery lasted 9 years which was far more than expected.

Here's a current dash shot of a '97 Mountaineer we sold last year. It's had front wheel bearings replaced twice, new starter, new alternator, and some other miscellaneous maintenance items, but is still going on the original 302 that's never been opened up. My parents' 06 Explorer with a 3V 4.6 has been just as reliable and is sitting at 280k right now. There was a late '80's Mustang GT at the Carlisle show that was at 595k miles with an untouched engine yet. Those 302's are pretty darn reliable.

My Honorary Nephew's '97 Camry finally died after 380,000 "rode hard and put away wet" miles. It was instrumental in our decision to get a Camry as Cindy's grocery getter.

For Detroit? Probably not many left out there, but there was a reason cab companies often selected mopar slant 6 power.
