Then this is not the car for him, stay away from anything European as the parts and labor is very expensive. If your looking for a Foreign car stick with Honda or Toyota as both of those makes have a decent cost of operation although they are still higher than American made vehicles, and of those it is GM that has the lowest of operation.
