It is very nice to soo many replies. It did clear up most of my doubts.
Hey 94bmw325i, I am sorry about your experience
I want to know more of your car problems. As a owner of used 93 Maxima I could certainly relate to that.
Could you be more specific about what breaks?
what is expensive parts or service ?
If there is some thing specific to look for while I check out I would like to know..!!
From my experience in a 8+ year old car there could be three general categories of problems, make it four
- Normal Wear and tear
Tires, break pads and rotor, struts, ball joint
- Sudden death
Alternator, Fuel pump, window motor, radio, sensors etc
- rare but happens
Exhaust system, bearing, A/C system
Then there are catastrophic failures - engine/transmission.. which haven't happened to me...
