My mom owned an 89 Sentra since new and recently gave it to her mother'
who's 89 sentra was falling apart due to lack of maintinence. My mothers
had 127K on it and the engine is perfect and the car has never had a problem
other than rust (RI winters). I have an '89 240sx with 126K on it and it
still runs fine. eats some oil, but less than a quart per oil change. No
rust yet. at all on it. I bought a 2001 Ranger XLT this year fully loaded
with the off road package and such. 31,600 miles so far and still runs
fine, never had a prob yet. I think both companies make fine vehicles
(exception being most ford cars)
But I think people waste so much time being fanboys that they don't realize
one thing.....Most companies build quality is damn good now and reliability
isn't as much of an issue as it was in the past. If peoplt took care of
their vehicles, they would last much longer, regardless of the brand.
What's this?! Someone who actually believes people have an obligation to
take care of their possessions instead of blaming (suing) a
manufacturer?! Wow, and I thought common sense was *completely* dead.
You are a scholar and a gentleman. I you lived in Laramie, I would offer
you a beer.

Totally agreed... but when was the last time you persuaded someone to
take care of their car? I can't even get my wife to check the tires or
fluids on hers, she just wants to get in, turn the key and go - for
