>After being left stranded on I-270 for the tird time in one month by my fully-paid off prior car, I gave up trying to fix the darn thing and bought a Focus to be used exclusively as my commuting vehicle.>What did you do to maintain your old vehicle?? My DH and I had an interesting discussion about the philosophy of car ownership. His belief is to ONLY repair the car when it breaks down or when your diligence notices a potential problem (frayed belts, bald tires). He always checks the fluids, but doesn't do 'annual' stuff with his car. Sometimes he changes the oil, sometimes he doesn't. He just makes sure that the oil level is ok. I, however, like the idea of regularly maintaining my vehicle. Every 25,000 miles I take it in for extensive 'maintaining'. Depending on the level of miles, different things are replaced before they die in the field! In my mind this means my car should be more reliable.
