I would agree Carl getting probs sorted out as soon as they arise helps keep running costs down - big time. And sure doesn't preventative maintenance go a long long way.
On the other hand it is always possible to buy a lemon (havent we all at some time
) or the car has been clocked or badly abused before we own it.
One thing I have learnt about cars is that of you hear something untoward don't hope it will go away - no-one has invented the self-repairing car just yet.
