I am already doing the research for my next car. My Impala is currently in the 130Kish range for mileage and I have already replaced the transmission. Something breaks on this car almost monthly (just recently replaced the windshield wiper motor---again) and it is very well maintained. I have unfortunately poured a lot of money into the past few years and I can only thank my lucky stars that my father is a mechanic and aside from the transmission, I haven't had to pay for labor.

The head gasket blew on my wife's 2005 Impala this week. The head gasket on my brother-in'laws 2007 blew while still in warranty. Are they prone to this?
