Are you Happy with your Automobile?

Cars mean SO much to most all of us. For some its a form of transportation..... for others its an extension of themselves.
Are you happy with whatever you drive?

I will never buy another Ford car again!!
That is all we have had and the newer we get, the worse they get. No way, never again!!
I have a 2003 Escape and I have had nothing but trouble with it and there has been 3 recalls on it so far.

I have an F-150 pickup, and I love it. Of all the cars I've owned, it is hands down my favorite. It towed our trailer for three years straight, across the Appalacians and Rockies and back, moving constantly (not snowbirding, moving constantly). No matter how cold it gets, it starts up every time. I really don't need that large a vehicle these days, but I wouldn't give it up at this point.

I once had a "Pacer". Everyone said they were junky...and I loved mine. We now drive a big old "Crown Victoria"...bought it for a $ 1,000. It's the kind policeman used to drive. It's ok...at least it always starts...and that's about all I ask of a car! ( Though someday I'd like to have a real nice luxury van). lol

for me a car is mostly something to get from A to B...
My old Ford will be changed next year, I have a longer way to job and that'll be to much..
My hubbies car is given to him from his employee, he is a sales representative (?) for agriculture machines and travels about 65.ooo miles a year.

But we also have our old mercedeses in the garage..
our '65 Fintail 220S and the `68 /8 250.
Thats our hobby, we sometimes drive around, we are organized in a Mecedesclub and meet other people, who are as crazy as we are..

I have a 5 year old Subaru Forester that I absolutely adore! It's run steady as a rock, have never had to do anything but basic maintenance, and it's really true that it goes 'from the wheels that slip to the wheels that grip'! From driving in snow and ice up and down the central New Jersey hills to driving in pouring rain-slicked tropical storm rains here in Charleston, I've always felt safe in it. And the gas mileage ain't bad, either!
