Phil is exactly right. Given the prices of new
cars and the depreciation there of, there is
really no such things as a car nickel-and-dimeing
you to death. A new car will cost you $500 a
month. Put $500 a month into an MG and within
one season, you will have nothing else to spend
money on -- nickels or dimes!!!
