Wow, that's insane. I think I've put about $300 of fixing stuff into my truck over the past 15,000 miles.

Yea but his dad took it places. Unless you personally know who you are taking it to you get ripped off. A ranger does not cost a lot at all to maintain. Even the expensive things

This may be true but it is what will happen when the next thing breaks. So either way I would be paying a lot to get it fixed the next time around.
