    I've owned Chevys, Jeeps and Fords. Cost for repairs for the Jeep where way out there. Repairs for the Chevy were constant.

    But the Fords that I have owned (4 total) have been minor and mostly easy fixes.

    I don't make fun of other makes of vehicles, but I will stay loyal to Ford, Wish they still made Excursions. Family consists of 4 kids, wife, dog and me.

    I currently own a 92 Ford Bronco and a 01 Expedition.

    Had a 1996 Dodge Caravan. Let's see, driver's window linkage replaced twice, passenger window linkage replaced once, A/C had to be repaired every spring, radio replaced completely (buttons no longer worked), completely replaced all of the windshield wiper components (motor, body control module), transmission went while coming back from Ohio, spent an extra couple of days outside of Buffalo, NY. Replacement transmission went up a year later. Drove it to a Honda dealer stuck in second gear and asked him how much he would give me for it. "$100." He then suggested donating it to charity, which actually worked out pretty well.

    Bought a Honda Odyssey, that was in 2003. So far it's needed only oil changes and a brake job.

    Had a '96 stratus - averaged putting it in the shop every other month for the first six months; new tranny, new a/c, etc. When I put it up for auction (didn't want to be the one to pass on the pos to someone else) it was leaking oil from around the spark plugs.

    We had a jeep Liberty that had front end issues that casused us to eventually sell/trade in because of the cost to repair, etc. Never again.

    Probably my best car ever was a 2002 Intrepid. I still have it with 92K on it. I would have bought a new one if they didn't quit making them.

    My latest vehicle. 2008 Toyota 4Runner! Awesome SUV. And they aren't in bankruptcy!

    Heck Toyota just developed a powered wheelchair controlled by "thought control!" How's that for cool!

    I must've just gotten lucky with my 93 and 98 Dodge Dakotas.

    Not much in the way of problems with either one. The 93 needed a fuel pump replaced on it.

    Well over 100K on both of them.

    My wife's 01 Durango, on the other hand, has had persistent brake problems.

    Bought a brand new 1500 quad cab 4WD. Nice truck to drive but in the 102K miles I owned it (99.9% highway/three years) I put in two throttle position sensors, a new head (right side) due to improper head gasket (water hole missing), had the transmission rebuilt, engine pinging so they flashed the computer and reduced the engine power what felt like at least 25% (not good), vacuum leak in heater controls which caused the transmission to go in and out of OD constantly. They said they'd have to tear out the whole dash, I placed an after market vacuum reservoir in the line instead, fixed problem.

    I bought a brand new vehicle so that I wouldn't have these kinds of problems. Dodge was supposed to be a good brand and it was nice to drive, but reliable, you couldn't prove it by me, and it's unlikely I'll ever buy another one.
