    I've been seeing a lot of commercials lately that Chevy is the best this, that and the other thing, winning all these awards. Were they mentioned at all? I've always been Ford/Toyota, myself.

    It doesn't sound very scientific for Consumer Reports.

    Just about any car will last 200k miles if maintained properly, assuming that it is not involved in a significant accident. Rust is the car equivalent of cancer, and I suspect it is responsible for a lot of cars. being junked, while the rest of the car might be worth saving.

    The older a car is, the more likely it will be owned by someone who is impecunious and unwilling to keep up with the maintenance.

    You mean cars with American company nameplates. Many of those Hondas and Toyotas are built in U.S. factories...

    It's a 2006. I bought it used in 2010. Will give it up this summer. Looks like hell now, but it is the best car I ever owned.
