Guys, I think this whole thing is blown out of proportion. Yes it'll cost a bit to maintain it, but people make it seem like you're gonna declare bankruptcy. Now sometimes shit happens and something breaks and then it's extremely expensive. Other than the rare and random things that could happen, you can expect some common issues.. I say stick with your car if you like it, if not, I guess you have a reason to switch it up!
Just make sure you can afford it when those "random" issues might come into play haha
Either way, just my .2 cents
