dvsutton 5pts I'm 29 and have had two imports. One was a 2003 Toyota Crapolla. When I was at the University of California that car would not stay running for two days straight. I changed the timing belt, rotors and brake pads twice, a/c compressor, front bearings, c/v joints, and all of the shocks before it hit 70k miles. The next car I bought was a new Honda Accord. Within the first six weeks of ownership it spent 22 days at the dealership for a stalling problem, seat heaters, rattle in the dash, cd player replacement, and a drivers door that would not close enough that I could catch a cold with all of the wind coming in. So as a young person I will not ever consider an Import brand after what I went through. I now drive a Dodge Dakota. Bought it new. Never had it in for any problems at all. Imports are WAY over rated. You couldn't give one to me.
