You shouldn't just bash someone with a low credit score because there are usually reasons job loss, illness etc.
The Toyota 1.8 liter good engine just have to keep oil in it because they love to burn oil. I had a 1989 Pontiac 6000 2.8 liter V6 I thought it was a great car. I actually ran it clear up to 175,000 miles still running great when I sold it.
