      +Un Known good cars should last longer then 100k miles as long as the maintenance is done on regular basis. Ever car I have owned went over 100k. I never replaced engine or tranny nor before 100k. I replace 2 trannys on 2 cars but they both was well over 100k miles.

    So a company from India TA-TA owns Range Rover? Yep that might explain why they aren’t reliable. Reminds me of India’s tech support...They seem to always have to fix glitches in operating systems...I believe this is all by design, it’s called job security. Same goes for selling a $90K Range Rover that’s prone to failure...Keeps their people in TA-TA working.

    All cars today have to follow cafes standard Government Regulations meaning all materials are made lighter including body panels...Most plastic materials is made to be recycled which means they are intended to be recycled materials later and not designed to be long term vehicles. Just about all of the vehicles today no matter the price aren’t made to last and life expectancy isn’t long term vs older American classic automobiles made out of real US Steel and engines that had less technical electrical systems. If you live in New England the winters are extremely rough on vehicles here because of road salts to melt ice which causes vehicles to corrode at a much faster pace than normal.

    I worked for a Nissan dealer for nearly 3 years never seen an Altima with a blown head. Lots, and lots of failed transmissions but that’s not limited to the Altima, it was the Altima the maxima the Sentra and the cubes as well. The titan and armada has trans issues as well but it was because of a failed cooler gasket that allowed coolant into the transmission.

    A bmw will last as long as you do proper maintenance and could afford to fix it yourself 50% of the time without taking it to the shop not counting that you got connections. Let me give yall some free game, learn how to diagnose the problem and fix the problem, than you'll be gold. Think ahead, buy parts ahead of time even if you don't need them, do your upgrades, do your required maintenance. If you plan on keeping the car

If you generally take care of your car get oil changes on time you'll have few problems. Also people be driving there cars with broken parts and don't reliaze the longer you don't fix it the more wear and tear will begin with other parts
