like I said, asinine if it isn’t making you money. Your wife’s car sounds like a tool to be utilized for business, and the Rolex as well (and what a novel thought, he must run in circles I’ve only heard of). The only vehicles I buy new are trucks that get written off on farm deduction, and they get utilized for that. I’m not scared of good debt, big or small, because it earns more than it costs.
Please don’t think my comment was to contradict what you were saying. I was trying to support it

I have owned 3 Kias and every one was a great car. No problems AT ALL

When I hear stuff like that I wonder how many miles the person put on the car and did they keep it until it puked.
or did they trade it off with under 200,000 miles on it.

5 Datsun Z cars 240-280's every one made 300,000 NO repairs except brakes and filters and oil. Original clutches struts
and all.
200 and 250 inline 6 fords I have had many and one went 300,000 also and then a starter went out.
That was a 1982 Mustang. Car eventually fell apart at 376,000 miles.
Engine , trans and rearend were still perfect and were donated to another vehicle.


1989 Escort made 250,000 before the trans decided to slip a bit sometimes.
Made 275,000 and I traded it for a 70,000 mile 1995 Corolla which now has over 350,000 miles on it.
No major repairs.

Anything should go 200,000 without issue in my book if it is reliable.

I drive my stuff hard also and my Z cars and Mustangs had trailer hitches and pulled stupid loads that
i should not be pulling.
I do not show my cars much mercy.

I would sincerely hope the "bugs" are worked out of all 2020-2021 vehicles.

If you can't get 400,000 miles from todays technology then the manufacturers have stuck it to you once again.
