Hi Scotty, I bought Chevrolet Cruze 2016 last year and then found you on YouTube, now i fully understand the mistake i have made! Bad timing.

Anyways i am planning to change my car and i am moved by your concept of beater car. I want to buy a family car now, which i want to keep for a decade or more as long as it don’t break. Sort of beater car but starting with a recent model car and then converting it to a beater car.

Do you think Honda Accord 2016 will be good car for my purpose? My only concern is regarding the Earth Dreams tech video you posted. I live in Toronto so winter temp can be -30 C and your video said that Earth Dreams problems can be worse in chilled weather. If i change the oil regularly, do you think things will be fine?

Also do you think Honda Accord CVT transmission will last 200K miles? What care should i take to make it last this long?

If not Honda Accord, do you think Hyundai Sonata 2015 will server my purpose? My friend bought it new on lease and i can get it for good price. It have just 15K miles on it in 4 years.

Any other car you would like to recommend except Toyota Camry?

Yes, it's a guessing game but the most winners of the Game pick Toyota.

If you're looking for reliability get a Toyota Camry or Corolla I would just junk that Chevy Cruze as quick as possible.

In Reality NO One knows HOW LONG ANY VEHICLE WILL LAST

Scotty has alot of Experirence that he has relied on from working on these vehicles , friends and research , I Respect Him , So should You

when it comes to exact vehicles (A Single Vehicle) A blind squirrel will find a nut once in a while , meaning you could have a Vehicle that will last 700,000+ miles or a Vehicle that will cause you ALL KINDS OF HEADACHES and Clunk Out early in it's life ,
Care and regular maintenance being of Most Importance

But Truth is None of us Mechanics can predict how long ANY (1) Vehicle will last
