Well, welcome to the board! But you might be a little too rough on those "Blue Ovals." You just gotta pick the right ones, like the F-series trucks or the Taurus, you'll definitely get more than 150K out of those guys. I think the Chevies are dead at the factory and then run several thousand miles post-mortum.
These Dodge cars are pretty neat and sophisticated too. Also have a lot of nice "creature comforts."
Good luck and nice to meet ya!
