Hi,new here. " Do happy people post messages saying 'Everything is still fine,I just thought you'd all want to know' often?" I don't tend toward "religious fervor"or irrational brand loyalty.However,I've been married to my '97 900se turbo for nearly 7 years.Wish my other marriage were so low maintenance.My "major" repairs included fixing the power antenna and replacing the bumper.That was only necessary as I was rearended by a Toyota Camry,which needed the entire front end replaced.The driver,a real Einstein,simply HAD to use her cell phone at a red light during rush hour.Were I to follow suit,it's somehow reassuring to know I wouldn't have my spinal cord wrapped around an engine block. I get about 30 mpg in a car that can smoke most Mustangs.I feel like I can out maneuver anything but a skateboard.Repair bills,over the span of 7 years,amounted to 300$ US .Routine maintenance(all fluids)have amounted to no more,or more often, than a Chevy.The air con. to this day(I'm in Florida)makes me realize men have nipples too. At purchase I was unconcerned about depreciation.To me it's more important to have peace of mind and hang on to a car long term,provided it serves you well.It's not like you get anything from a trade in on any kind of car,anyway. there ya go
