Mechanical failures usually don't fix themselves. Read the label of whatever you get , and keep the number for a tow truck handy. Then if you want reliability with relatively low cost maint. buy a Camry 4Cyl. , easy 300K car IF maintained. Check 'Consumer Reports Used Car Buyers Guide' for more info. -
