They're pretty reliable, I have two with ~175k and ~240k. That being said, unless I had a brand spanking new car with an unlimited super duper warranty I would always have at least a couple autos. If one goes down just use the other while fixing it. Having to rely on someone else to make repairs costs a lot, and IME they tend to try to rip you off.

can't afford to insure two cars of my own, point well taken tho. i do however
use my wife's car and visa versa when necessary. BTW, i'm looking @ toyota's corolla twin, the prizm. they are less expensive and easier to find ABS.

I'd love to have spare cars but my good wife hates paying extra insurance and registration costs.

Since I don't have a spare wife I try to take good care of the one I have...

My wife told me either my cars go, or she goes... Oh well, I'm guess I'm gonna miss her! D
