I am curious if certain car models tend to attract buyers who are not good customers later on down the road for mechanics shops and the like? I work on computers/electronics for a living and see certain trends. Gaming consoles attract a really low-class type of person, especially the adult gamers. I mean it is rare to get one in without roaches, cigarette smoke, and just general filth inside of it. Sometimes they even reek of urine which I assume is from their pets.
Wal-Mart computer owners are another bad category although not nearly as bad as the gamers. Cheap no-name TV brands are another bad one but I don’t see a lot of them anymore as I tell people they aren’t even worth it to repair.
Are there certain car models that mechanics cringe about as they see them pull up to the bay doors of the shop? It may not be the car itself but the owners they attract. Most gaming consoles use high quality components that do not fail often under normal and non-abusive use so when I see them, they are usually really nasty. Any car, no matter how well made, will also fall apart when neglected.
