I drive a black 4-door '95 Geo Metro Sedan, 154K+ miles on it and rolling. I will have that car completely wrapped in duct tape before I will ever give it up.

The lovely Mrs. Whatever drives a Blue 2003 Saturn VUE. Comfortable and roomy for a compact SUV, great for hauling the little Whateverling and our two dogs for family weekend trips.

We also have a Green 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500. Great for hauling around furniture and whatnot. If/when my Metro goes, this will be my fill-in until I can swing getting the Aveo.

Thank you for giving me a hearty laugh this morning, especially since I finally saw "Anchorman" last weekend.

Likewise, thanks for the laugh. Hadn't heard that one in awhile!

"I drive the 1997 Mazda Protege with 110,000 miles, because I am wicked cheap." Pieman

I feel ya. I drive a '93 Ranger 4x4, with the 4.0L V6 & a 5spd. It's got 210K on the clock, and whatever I can do to keep it ticking, I do, because a little maintenance is cheaper than car payments. I even measured 21mpg last week. Granted, the A/C has degenerated to 3 windows wide open ;^)

NickiePi drives an '01 Chrysler LHS that we picked up last year.

I also keep my '01 Sebring Coupe with the 3.0L V6 and 5spd. in the garage. It's got 96k, and I'd like to delay the 100k mile maintenance as long as possible.

I would reccommend buying Consumer Reports' New and Used (they are separate) Car Guides. I have only purchased cars that they reccommend (with a big CHECK) and have never been disappointed. Since they purchase the cars as regular customers and run them into the ground--I find that their reports are much more accurate that other car mags that get the manufacturer's extra special showcase version.

Also--use the Net to understand how much a dealer pays for a car so that you don't get hosed on the price.

1998 Saturn SL1. Works fine if you don't need to, ya know, accelerate. I could get good horsepower (my car's got 100 hp) with a hybrid, right? Just because of all the driving I've gotta do for work, so it's that or something with ridiculous mileage.

I have a 2001 Subaru Forrester that I got about 1.5 years ago. When I'm done with school and have a nice money making job in about a year, I'd really like to get a hybrid (Toyota Prius or Honda Civic most likely).

I also drive a 2002 Jeep Wrangler on a semi-regular basis in the summer, but it's not mine.

I drive a 1991 Honda Accord and it still works better than any automobile the rest of my family has despite them having much newer cars. Since I acquired the car six years I've only had to repair it once.

1999 Saturn SC2 3-Door (SUICIDE DOOR) Coupe with 65K miles. It has its weird habits, but for the most part it works. And it just passed the NJ inspection, so I'm happy.

1999 Nissan Altima. Runs great, and I got it for a steal, as I bargained with the dealer before the car got to the lot. They saw the car, tried to raise the price on me, but I wouldn't let them and I got the car for about 5,000 less than I should have. I'm sure that man never made that mistake again.

2005 Ford Explorer. I traded my 2001 Pontiac Sunfire in on it a couple of months ago. I had to upgrade to a more 'family-friendly' vehicle & I'm sure not ready for a mini-van.

Mrs. Dewce drives a 2004 Saturn Vue (Green)

I drive a 2003 Saturn Vue (Black) Great vehicles

Past cars:

1993 Chevy Cavalier - Drove it 'til it dropped
1984 Buick Riviera
1980 Chevy Monte Carlo
1972 Chevy Impala - Sleek 2-door model that ROCKED!

All of these vehicles were purchased used. A large cache of collectibles mandates that I don't buy new.
