Is the stereotype that american cars are less reliable then japanese cars true? thanks in advanced.

also, the automatic transmissions are considered more reliable than the manual, and if you plan on keeping the car for a while, pick up some subframe connectors.

Lastly, the parts are a LOT cheaper than your average Honda and Toyota, you can get replacement engines for 1700 dollars, used replacement engines for $500.

The expensive components for replacement are alternators and AC units.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
