My dear ol' Suzuki is going in for an operation tonight which has inspired this post.
What model car do you have, how long have you had it and how reliable has it been?
My car has been absolutely wonderful since we got it in 2001 (born in '97, 1 other owner). Never a problem for years, just a battery change as it had been on the original battery until 2005. Late last year I needed to fork out for new brake discs & pads, have some welding done under the wheel arches and tonight I need to have the handbrake feet (or foot) looked at as it's sticking when left for a couple of days.
Apart from these few things that have come with age this is probably the most reliable car my family (and certainly me) has ever owned and *touch wood* has never broken down on us.
Thumbs up to my 1l mk1 Wagon R!
