Make 90s car good as new or close

was wondering how youd get a ef fairmont with 311,000km as reliable as a newer car (au or ba ford or hyundai terracan/santa fe) reliable enough to plan ahead or take people at no warning.

asking because it currently needs some repairs and cant afford all repairs at once and can only afford bit at time and just put up with it.

the aircon doesnt work and the heater only works when it wants to but it needs other work before those, and also oneday itll need a proper fix for the head gasket(hae decided to just get another second hand engine when we get to that), and needs suspension work (struts/bushes/steering rack) and also needs new power steering hose and pump (already have those just need rack and some fittings and its that sorted), and just little things around the engine too.

also needs some wiring repairs too

can get access to some cheap parts off a mate soon hopefully and getting spare control arms so the bushes can slowly be done then just swap whole thing over same with uprights

how could you be able to deal with it all if youve decided to hang onto car and keep going. other than that you cant beat the good old x and e series fords they just dont die

also what makes a 01 terracan with 133,000km more reliable wouldve thought theyd age in time as well

also what makes a 2012 challenger with 170,000km more able to tow larger or heavier caravans without running hot than a 94 jeep cherokee with nearly 400,000 would it just me modern tech?

Also what’s the reason why a lot of people don’t drive their old car till it completely dies.

Is it because they have family that live away or like to take trips and not have to worry if it’s going to make it or is it because they become a hassle in some way, what are your reasons for not driving them till they die.

asking for someone else
