We use to joke about the auto companies making 'disposable' cars back in the 70's. Not really a joke when you think about it. Their marketing strategy has always been that the consumer should buy a new car EVERY YEAR. Even in the Model T days, they would offer a buy back plan to take in the old model as trade-in for a new model. Ford would then refurbish the old model and resell to the customers who couldn't afford a new model. I'll agree that PM is the key to long life for any machine.
