I'm with Piotrsko on this. While I don't buy new vehicles, I buy them new enough that I never have anything but regular maintenance come up (fluid changes, air filter).

My 2006 Acura has only needed fluid changes so far. Not even a spark plug change. I knock the dirt out of the air filter occasionally.

If I were to purchase a vehicle today, I wouldn't consider anything older than about 2010... I think Uber's requirement is the car can't be more than 10 years old, not that I would drive for Uber.
