Heya, Greybeard, even a Yugo can be made to run forever if you recognize and fix whatever goes wrong with it as soon as it goes wrong.

You have to look at vehicles from the fleet manager’s perspective: it costs x dollars to run the fleet, and fleet budget divided by fleet size is the cost per car. If any car exceeds that cost, out of the fleet it goes.
An overly large proportion of the US passenger car TOE can’t meet fleet managers’ cost restrictions.
It’s hard to get around hard data, internet or no.
I read elsewhere that GM and Toyota sold the same number of cars wordwide, yet Toyota turned a $17B profit and GM had a $38B loss. So maybe it’s not the cars that are the problem.
