Honestly, these cars are considered disposable, to put it charitably. The engines and transmissions rarely last to 150,000 miles or more. In addition, the heating and ac system have problems with working longterm, and the shocks and struts generally wear out by 70-80,000 miles.


If this is going to be your primary mode of transportation, I would walk away from it and not purchase it

I think you are sending this to the wrong person, I did not ask a car question.
