I have spent more on my 6 YO Mazda & 10 YO Ford than I have on my 23 YO MG.
Plus, I can't DIY on the other vehicles as much as I can on the MG. So, with
a little help from my friends, I can do a tune-up on the MG for $30 that
would cost me at least $60 on the other vehicles. And I've had to replace a
tranny on the Ford and the Mazda needed new struts and those were both big

  This week's Newsweek (Bill Gates on the cover) has an article on hot
wheels now or soon to be in the US market.   "...Miata, a roadster that
evoked a bygone era of Triumphs and MGs, minus the huge repair bills" is
from the article. Once you read the glowing reviews, check out the advert
on p.4 to get an idea of their judgment.
  Thoughtful of these guys to slander our 25+ year old vehicles.
Question--has anyone really  _had_  a "huge repair bill"  or is this a
perception caused by the annoying little repairs that get under one's
