    I had been driving a 1997 Chev S10 but it was getting harder and harder to get parts and it seemed lile something was breaking every month.
    In the last 12 months I had paid out $4000 in repairs, Last month a motor mount broke and noone had one and GM Canada didn't even have one so I went to GM USA and they said 6 to 8 weeks to get one from offshore.
    It seems Gm will only keep making parts for 5 years and then they let them run out. They say most people don't keep trucks longer then 5 years.
