The heat kills motors, construction sites don't do them much good, the dust gets in everything. I go through air filters like nothing. I need a new battery at least once a year and a set boots and shocks (Unmarked road humps and potholes) . Windscreen wipers just fall apart by August in fact anything made out of rubber. By the time the lease is up I'm glad to see the back of them. I haven't broken one yet but we go through a lot of wish bones too. I'm sure our cars have a rougher life and get more use than many that said they have full maintenance regularly as part of the package. If your looking second hand motor stay well away from a 4x4 that's been registered to an Engineering firm.

Haha. You do, but alas I don't.
I have to settle for a Fusion/Mondeo! Very reliable although it's no Bronco...😆

A reliable Ford?! Wow. I'll still stick with Asian. How often does one have to service a "normal" car used in "normal" conditions (town driving)? I get the impression you have to change the filters etc. every three months.

To moderators - feel free to change the thread name to "One more Riyadh compound and car buying thread"

Definitely reliable. Been using my current vehicle for six years averaging 30km a year. Never had any engine problems in that time, and neither have any of the people I work with. I service every 5000km as per the dealer's request.
