Subject: RE: BS: How good/bad is your car?
My RAV4 is perfect.
My previous car, a 2004 Toyota station wagon, ran steadily for 150K miles and had no problems except a bad case of psoriasis (the paint peeled).
I had a Chevy Cavalier before that and it stopped dead in the middle of rush hour one morning because a lousy capacitor went out on a circuit control board for the battery.
I had a wonderful big Chevy Van with a V8 engine before that, and it generally ran very well, but the carbon sensor on the throttle control got coated and it suddenly started limping and choking and going no more than 30 mph until we had the damn sensor replaced.
Before that I had a Toyota 4WD pickup truck that always ran perfectly.
