Those cars are tanks. You just cant kill them. But at that price? Hell no! $1200 tops.

Thank you!


Have a friend who drive the family just shy of 500k km, trips across the country to Vancouver and back! Standard maintenance, he was a stickler for that, but other than exhaust system and cv's (and of course brakes, but that's routine) not much more for repairs.
