"I dont spent nothing else besides a routine maintenance" unless of course you happen to own one of those Toyota "run-a-way" Camery`s OR Nissan Altima and Nissan Versa sedans OR the Honda Civic for issues with their side curtain air bags, just to name a few.
To the person who stated:
"...a 1992 525i that was sitting at a kroger parking lot with 3900 on the windshied. "
Did you ever try driving that 525 in the snow?

We have two Toyotas; a 2009 Camry Hybrid and an 2009 Yaris. The Camry was built in Kentucky by American labor and the Yaris was built in Japan. Guess what - We own them both free and clear. We offer no excuses and don't care what those phony patriots think or care. We will buy whatever we want to buy from whomever we please. Apparently a few million good Americans feel the same way.
