    They really push those radiator flushes, too.

    Nissan doesn't have a 36K-mile warranty?

    Nissan does have a 36K warranty, but brakes are usually considered "maintenance items," exempt from warranty coverage. Like windshield wipers, etc. Clutches are also often in this category.

    Speaking of Nissans, happy birthday to mine--turned over 100K yesterday!

    My mom's 1990 Nissan has about 150,000 on it. She has extended its life by only driving it to school a few miles away, but it's fucking amazing. And the thing still runs as well as it did the day she bought it.

    Again, I chime in late. But when I bought my Saturn Vue in December of '03, I did so because the prior SUV was falling apart. Because I had neglected routine maintenance. A/C had died, the starter, transmission, water pump and hoses had been replaced and I decided I'd had enough with the ride after finding out that brake work would cost at least $900.

    When I bought the new ride, I was offered a 5-year, 100K-mile warranty for an extra $15 a month, and the warranty covered all scheduled maintenance and any non-cosmetic repairs. "Where do I sign!!!" Knowing how bad I was at taking the car in for anything other than oil change ...

    Cars - as my parents say, a necessary evil.
