98 Monte Carlo - ~83K miles - at ~20K i got the radio replaced because a small corner of the paint chipped off of the button. thats the only problem I've ever had with it.
92 Cavalier - ~184K miles - this car is a fluke of nature. The only major things done to this car is exhaust, fuel pump, and thats pretty much it. although, there is a slight leak in the head gasket that was discovered around 90K miles. the check engine light comes on occasionally. The emergency brake was disconnected a couple of years ago (you can now lift the hand brake with your pinky finger). this damn thing won't die, and obviously there is no point in selling it.
now to the A4. I think it misses the Audi dealership it came from. It likes to go back often. It doesn't bother me though, they always give me a nice clean car for a loaner (i usually ask for the A6 or A4 3.0....they gave me a A4 1.8 once...yuck), and i just drive the hell out of it. also, we have a service warrantee on it, so we don't have to pay to have anything done to it.
before, my parents had a 1990 Chevy Lumina minivan a.k.a. "the dustbuster." it had 178K miles on it when they killed it.
i would never buy ford. frankly, i would never buy toyota. i most def. never buy lexus. every third person owns one. for a luxury car, there is nothing special about them anymore. no one looks at lexus anymore and says, hey, thats a really nice car. i think everyone on here already knows what my next car is going to be
