Hate to hear this happened, but a stark reminder that we choose our cars with high ideals and then we have to drive on rough roads with the general public.
Which is why these cars from the lower financial orbits are so appealing. They deserve all the care we can give them but we have to accept that real life will take it’s toll. Higher dollar cars deserve a higher standard towards perfection and bring more stress into our lives.
My vehicle to venture into real life near home nowadays is a 2003 Tacoma. Super capable and super low stress. Like a favorite pair of jeans.
