There are things Detroit knows how to build and things they don't, there are also places where one brand or another has a weird weak point...Knowing what to get and avoid is important. I like buying used because you can look at the track records of heaviest used examples and know what issues are likely ahead on the low miles example your going to buy.

My dad had a Dodge truck that was great, but one of my employees has a 4 year old Chrysler 200 that is a complete piece of trash. In the end, you can get a lemon with any brand (even though certain manufacturers seem to have more than their fair share of lemons).

As an old friend of mine who was in the used car business all his life always said "It doesn't matter if its a house or a car....things are gonna tear up and you're gonna have to spend money on it".
There's a similar quote on those lines, "If it has t*ts or wheels, it's going to cost you money".

We all love what we love. My car could be on fire, and it's still better than yours.
