I have been in the business of repairing cars/trucks since 1976. I have worked and been trained by numerous manufacturers, European/American/Japanese. I have an associates degree in electronics and 2 masters from 2 different manufacturers as well. I know cars/trucks inside and out....
...You hate me because i bear bad news and dig deep into your wallet. It is however not my fault. I am honest and hard working. I am not saying that all technicians are. I am an anomally in that respect. I did not design that 2009 Toyota Camry that needs a water pump every 50k miles and requires 10 hours labor to replace. I did not sell you that 2008 Honda that needs a transmission already.
So, direct your attention to the real problem and research that new car. It may well be junk. Don't pay more just because it is a Toyota/Honda/Mercedes/BMW. On a positive note. Don't bother going to college if you want a career that will get nothing but increasingly more busy. Auto repair is a wide open field with never ending need.

Used to have an '89 Cutlass Ciera. Best Car I ever owned. That thing was indestructible. Made a HUGE mistake when I traded it for a 2004 dodge neon. What was I thinking. I regret it to this day.
This is the exact same car....I loved that car...
