    there will always be salvage yards for random small parts that go bad like a speaker cover or interior stuff. I think we'll be safe, not to mention i'm sure YearOne will pick up 4th gens on the "classic radar" in about 10 years.

    Direct replacement parts would have stopped being made in 2012 anyways. 10 years.
    Granted, many would still be available after that.
