My buddy has a very busy local shop there is constantly Honda Accords and
a lot of Subaru's there and he writes them big bills. I saw one for a Civic that needed a Catalytic converter and all the exhaust it was around 2200 bucks,he told me the cat was only available from the dealer,thats nuts and thats what I feel you get from a lot of these foriegn cars. Accords are starters, head gaskets, broken power windows. It does you good for a while but when it starts to get old and usually has poor maintanace it turns to a nightmare.The Subarus always seem to need a motor hes sent many to the junkyard,Mitsubishi's are really bad too, expensive to fix.
