Back in the early 1980s, a company was founded it import an
inexpensive car to the US from Yugoslavia. The called the car the
"Yugo". Yes, it was inexpensive - it was also cheap<g>.
The same year, Hundai (sp?) started. Their first car was slightly
expensive, but a bit better made. They are still around, and now
some OK cars
The Yugos rapidly became a joke in the US. You literally could not
give them away
As for the Chevy Chevette, I have a friend who owned 2 of them, and
put over 450k miles on the first, and 300k miles on the second, and
never had to do a major repair on either. I own one of his used
trucks - a Mazda B2300 (aka a 4 cylinder Ford Ranger), and it has
miles on it. The biggest repairs it's ever had was a new fuel pump.
(and yes, he puts a LOT of miles on a car/truck a year - like between
40k and 50k)

- Well said. We stick our head in the sand as to cost of owning & operating
just to have the convenience to choose when and where to live and travel. I
quite a few people who commute 50 to 75 miles to work and make what can
be described as good but not lavish incomes ...so you know they are spending
lot of time on road and where a lot of their after tax income goes. Sort of
hobbies like ours.
