My '78 CJ7 is ridiculously cheap to repair and super easy to work on. I can find every part commonly available at Autozone or where ever.

The 96 ZJ isn't too bad though.

I did most of the work on my old XJ, besides the rust it was very cheap and relatively easy to fix.

I've had my TJ since May, and I've done all the work on it myself. I was dreading replacing my cracked radiator last month, but it was only a couple hour job by myself - AND it was my first radiator job ever! That should speak volumes for how easy these things are to work on (with inexpensive parts for the most part). Other than that, I did the cat-back exhaust and intake (obviously easy) myself. Blower motor switch crapped out a couple weeks ago, and although the stealership charged 37 bucks for a new switch, it was cake to install.

I should add up how much I've saved by doing the work myself vs taking it in...

Now I've worked on blazers and S-10s before, talk about a nightmare (wheel bearings anyone!? )...

Corolla's have a 5 year 60,000 mile powertrain warranty on them. The Trans is covered by this.

Either your BSing, or your mom got screwed by a stealership.


Fords trucks and SUV's have been the cheapest. They do tend to break more often tho. Especially ball joints, and tie rods.

I've had 2 corolla's. It was more expensive to fix them, but they didn't have problems very often.

The Jeeps I've owned have been somewere in the middle, depending on what your replacing.
