Reliability is an age-old balancing act we must do when shopping for a car.

It’s a somewhat nebulous concept, but we all know it, especially when remembering our temperamental cars we’ve had in the past.

And who knows reliability better than the guys & gals out there working on cars every day for a living?

Our host starts us off with the video’s premise in a question to the mechanics on the floor,

“What car isn’t making it to 100K miles?”

He proceeds to go around to each guy, asking them the question.

Some are more enthused than others.

The first few answers fired off were some like “Mercedes”, “any Jeep”, etc.

And that was sure to offend any Mercedes or Jeep lovers out there.

Remember! These guys are experts!

At their…jobs.

But the best answer out of all of them was the guy who flatly said, “NO” as the camera approached.

And without hesitation he points to the car he’s sitting in, saying “This one right here.”
