Hi all,

Say I wanted to buy the most reliable new compact car on the market
right now, the one least likely to ever break down on me in the
future, what would it be?

cheers,

Is "reliablest" even a word?


How is the Lada doing these days? I recall when everyone was talking
about the little Russian car...

**Well, Lada copied Fiat (under licence, I believe), so, that answers
that question. The Italians are renowned for building the least reliable
cars and the Russians made them worse.

LOL I never owned an Italian car and there aren't all that many here in the States either. My dad spent some time in England during WWII while on leave, and he always said the English loved the Italian cars even though they hated the Italians.

The only car I can recall that was truly a rolling toilet was the Yugos imported to the States during the '80s.
