Is a long lasting car more efficient than one that breaks after a few hundred thousand miles?

    Always.  Longer lasting vehicles take less resources entirely, since repairs are minimal or non-existent: less money needs to be spent; less metals and plastics need to be used to make parts for the vehicle; and less road pollution occurs (since parts aren’t falling off).

    The only time to reconsider a new vehicle, is if there IS a greener alternative to upgrade with.  In 2007, the United States government pushed citizens to junk their older motor transport for vehicles manufactured in or after 1996, because more eco-friendly vehicles were being made from then onward.  Moments such as this are going to continue; a better, cheaper option is available, so it should at least be considered.
