^ Saturn is no more, GM tried selling the brand but the deal fell through. So they skuttled the brand.

It's funny, the engine is running ok, but the rest of the car is falling apart. The heat/air conditioning only works on full blast, the driver's side door handle is broken so I have to pry the handle up with a key, I think the timing belt is going. I'm not sure if I want to spend the money to get it all fixed, or just go for a new car.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

We have a 2009 Honda Accord coupe and I ride a 2006 Honda Shadow VLX Deluxe. Looking for a 4-door with good gas mileage to use when riding the bike isn't practical and in preparation for having kids.

Mine isn't the best winter car, I know this thanks to the recent snowstorm, but the rest of the year it's solid.

A shame, too, IMO.

Yeah, something newer might be in order.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

2000 Jeep Cherokee. I love the 4.0 liter engine (almost 300,000 KM on it) and the 4WD. It pulls our boat with ease.
2001 PT Cruiser. A little 4 banger (175,000 KM on it) that is fun to drive and easy on gas. I just wish we had the convertible for the summer months.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

1999 Chevy Cavalier. But i think I have a new car in my near future. This thing is getting hard to start anytime it's less than 40 degrees out. Also needs a few other repairs.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

I have a 2000 Saturn. I've paid for a lot of work on the car in the last year, year and a half, but it still drives relatively well all things considered.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

My old car got wrecked in an accident back in February. Thankfully no one was hurt. I bought a 2008 Toyota Prius to replace it. I've been quite happy with it these past 10 months and am loving how cheap gas is once again.

Re: What make of car(s) do you currently own?

It seems that the US and European markets for cars are really different, because I recognize maybe 1/3 of the cars mentioned in this thread. And that's an optimistic estimate.

Pause, while the rest of you look that up.
I just assumed it was a lizard, extra large edition.
