I honestly don't know about that one. I just think their equipment doesn't last as long. I've owned 2 dozen cars that never had brake fluid replacements with very high mileage lol
None ever had brake related failures. But you could cook the brakes very easily with that old fluid in there.
It seems to always be the hybrids with their electric pressure accumulator units failing.

Now for the fun part.

There is always a fun part!

My niece hasn't talked to me in years.
My family doesn't talk to me much and she didn't talk to them for years, either. She didn't invite any of us when she got married, but she wanted the attention and presents, so she announced they were having a big wedding, and didn't invite my brother or I, but she invited our mother, who cannot drive very far, so I lost an entire weekend driving Mom to the vow renewal of her step-granddaughter who doesn't talk to her.

I had suggested that we stay another night and I take my old Accord to the transmission shop, but I wanted to get my sister's permission first, since supposedly it is her car now.

Each of my sisters independently invited us [or at least Mom] to brunch at the house of the sister who lives in Arizona and has the rude stepdaughter, but when we arrived my visiting sister took my niece and nephew to Target.

They were going to walk, but I wanted Mom to have a chance to see her silly daughter and grandkids, so I volunteered the Accord, and my niece found the key.

They were still gone for hours.

The other sister and her husband were also gone for hours.

Were we supposed to ransack their fridge?

Mom ordered me to buy a cheesecake on Saturday and then take her to the store to buy a cake.

Xistday is in 10 days, but Mom wanted to celebrate everyone's birthday, all year, except it was just us, so we just ate cake and ice cream on an empty stomach, and my brother took a nap.

I was trying to convince Mom to let us leave since we were horribly bored, but she kept saying "One more minute" and everyone finally showed up.

A friend I have had for over 20 years told me she came home early from work because she is sick and I announced that I was going to visit the sick and afflicted.

"No you're not! You could get Mom sick!"

Nobody cares if I get sick!

I could only hope that she would be okay and drive my family home so I can take care of a million different things.

My friend is hospitalized. The last thing they told her is they think she has lesions on her liver, but she hasn't talked to a doctor, just various nurses.

She keeps saying she wishes I was there.

I happened to see this Civic and if I were down there I would check it out and if is in better shape than my Accord tell my sister "The Accord needs expensive repairs, but this doesn't. Do you want to trade?"

Then, when the Accord is fixed, sell it to a stranger for as much as possible.

I hope that my friend is okay!

1996 Saturn sl1 with 38,702 miles in Mesa, AZ for $1,200








Quote:
Original owner/original miles. Literally owned by a little old lady. Admittedly, did not take good care of it but does run well. Might need brakes as there is a squeak when breaking. No major body damage, just faded paint. Inside dirty and some work needed.

Price reflects work that needs to be done.
I don't know what work it needs besides two new visors, some cleaning, and brakes.

Why would a Prius die on the road?

Why would a family simply replace a car without having a mechanic look at it?
Why would a family let a dead car sit for 4 months before doing anything with it?

2007 Prius with 226,000 miles and no ABS in Mesa for $1,800

I wish that I could look at this, but I really didn't have the time to look at the ad!

My sister kind of needs another car since Mom wrecked Crisis after I sold it to my sister and my sister sold her 2018 Odyssey that had one problem after another.

I am not sure that the extended warranty paid for itself, but she used it far too much.

She kept saying "This isn't why I bought a Honda!"

My sister is driving Mom's car because we aren't letting the lady who didn't look before turning left drive, so often I come home from grad school and Mom tells the guy who doesn't have the time to write this "We are starving and have been stuck in the house all day!"

Weird how she was impatient to put my brother in a day program in Show Low, but she hasn't mentioned it here.

Of course, he has been sleeping in even later.

Hey freebeard, as far as I know, almost all of these posts are sharing what might be useful for someone else.

Maybe someone would have wanted that Saturn.

I thought it was interesting because Jimbo was modifying one.

I kept wanting to buy a cheap Saturn and show him what could be done with ecomods, but I didn't have the time to fix my own cars.
