He said he's concerned about the maintenanace costs, which I took
to mean that he's soliciting information in order to get a general
idea of what maintenance costs would be, in order to *determine*
whether he can "afford the car." It isn't as though the guy's
already decided that the maintenance costs are high and he's
going to buy the car anyway.
"Golden-haired boy on the edge of the street,
In his tight jeans, on his lone beat.
There's a local foreign car repair shop by me, but the owner is a
friend of mine... I couldn't give you an accurate idea of maintenance
costs, but I will say that on my SL I've had problems with the power
steering pump, and rainwater leaks with either top on.
I've also poured a lot of money into it for cosmetic reasons, but I
suppose that would be entirely up to you. I like to keep the car
looking as new as possible.
