I think most of you have your head up your ass. The labor charge is the same at a dealer to repair a $12000 Aveo as it is to repair a $50,000 Corvette. I own or have owned Both.
As a matter of fact the parts to replace a head on a cheap dual overhead cam import engine is way more than on one of or single cam overhead valve corvette engines. I drove a C5 daily for over 5 years and it was basically the same cost as driving an Aveo. About the same fuel economy. One more Qt of oil per change and if both are driven in a civilized manner the tire will go the same distance. Yes the tires cost more but you don't have any tow bills if you put some dipwads beer bottle threw a tire(EMT's)
I am going to close this thread, because its not necessary to have any argument over this subject.
