Thank You @Crow. It wasn't easy to develop the never-say-die approach. However confident one is, there are tense moments when a problem suddenly crops up, and a lot of thinking goes into finding a workable solution. I believe that minor problems should come up to test our abilities to overcome them.

So far, I have always been rewarded with success after a painful wait eg. the AC issues in the blue Corolla. It is a battle of our diagnosis vs the technicians' and one needs to make them accept our point of view.

Thank You @Gotham_City; Yes, the white Endeavour in particular looks quite intimidating.

Thank You @MAS; You and bhpian @siddheshb helped me with info in late 2016 when I needed help.

Well said, @torquecurve. On non-Toyotas with a high odo reading, one has to be prepared to fix things that can break. In all these years, I've learnt to spot tell-tale signs of bad ownership and stay away from such cars. Even after due diligence, the car can throw up unforeseen issues, but these can be fixed. The joy of owning a "different" car cannot be explained.

That made for an interesting article @vigsom.

Wanted to buy a pre worshipped Yeti and also an old Vitara V6, but bailed as I expected the ownership experience to be an expensive learning curve.

I can just say that your friendship with the owner has had a fair impact on the costs incurred. Keep up the good work!
