I was a service manager in a car dealership for several years. If someone came in with a 18- 19 year old car like a Corsica we would not work on it. At that age and presumably high mileage everything is wearing out at about the same time. It becomes a never ending cycle of expensive repairs on a car that is only worth a few hundred dollars. The car owners in these situations seldom have the funds to pay for a proper repair so the shop ends up stuck with car, on TV, or in claims court.
