Alright MR! You are in BIG trouble!! You can't hide on this new board (OK, maybe you can!) I will find you and then tan your hide!

Just to add to that list of DS's. My Saturn SL1 was the most wonderful reliable vehicle we have ever owned. I HIGHLY recommend them. I just got my payout for it and they only gave me $6000 (Canadian!) for a '99 that we bought brand new. Soooo, this leads me to believe that you could get one pretty reasonably priced. The trick would be finding someone who wanted to part with it though.

We bought our Chevy Impala in 2000 for 16,000. We still really like it. The only problem that we have with it is speed bumps. It bounces toooo much.:)
