  • So I was doing my research and I learned the Chevy/Geo Prizm is basically just a rebadged Corolla. I wonder how many other cars are out there that are nice but cheaper just cause of the brand.

  • The Dacia brand is basically cheaper Renaults with more basic detailing and equipment. Surveys indicate they are reliable.

  • Don’t buy an Audi.  Two people I knew had theirs go on fire while sitting in traffic.

  • Years ago, I had a Chevy Prism that was actually a Toyota.  It ran great, bought it with 56K miles on it and ran it into the ground when the transmission failed at 210K miles.  I got like $100 for parts.
