Are you happy with whatever you drive?
Sushi, you did not answer your own question. Are you happy with what you drive?

ok ok ok.... I drive a 1997 Toyota Camry. It has 90k miles. There are a couple of things that needed to be replaced, and fixed. The engine needed all new gaskets, if I had to pay for them it would have about $2000 to fix. The trans needed a new gasket. I had to replace the front axle, the starter was just replaced, and next is the front strut bushing that needs to be replaced.

Im not happy with it. Its not that attractive either. But the engine is a inline 4 and is surprisingly peppy and the size of it is good. Plus gas milage is decent also. I would not buy one again.

Not at all 2000 Cherry Red 4x4 2 door Blazer. Its sharp looking but its a gas guzzler so I'm not happy with it at all right now. In fact we're getting ready to start shopping for another vehicle. I want something reasonable.....sporty.....good gas mileage.....about the size of a Grand AM. I've had 2 Grand AM's in the past and love the sporty look of them...........but we did have problems with each.

My first car was a Grand Am and I loved it. It was such a fin car to drive. I had the worst problem with rust though. By the end of its life there were more holes in it than there was metal. I could not go through the car wash because the soap suds would come up through the floor boards. That car sure did have its share of problems, but I still loved it.

1983 Ford Ranger P.O.S. with 58k on the engine and is painted scarlet and grey which scores major points here in the heart of Buckeye Nation. Looking forward to getting an F-150 next spring!
