So, I searched "car" in the search bar and didn't find much...so i thought I'd start a thread.
If you drive what kind of car do you have and what do you like about it? (I'm actually about to buy a car because of a hit and run accident from someone that hit me so i thought this may benefit me as well in my search)

Think of this as a type of car review thread.
Include:
-Maker of car and year
-Automatic/Manual transmission
-How much you paid for the car
-Miles it had when bought
-Any good or bad thoughts of the car
-Picture (if you have one)

As for me I had a '97 Honda Accord LX, automatic transmission with 160k miles on it when I bought it for $3050.
Pretty solid car actually. No ,transmission,engine, or any problems really. Unfortunately i was involved in a hit and run accident and just recently got $3200 back for it...which is awesome because i got more than what i paid for it.
Probably going to start saving for a higher dollar Nissan or Honda for later in 2010.
when words meant more...

Anyone who drives a 4wd and isn't actually doing some serious four wheel driving, is a knob.

Having said thatI have a 1999 toyota camry touring. Auto (though I do miss driving a manual). Bought it for 5 grand with 200,000 on the clock (that's kilometres not miles, seriously guys, get in with the metric system, imperial doesn't mean superior). And it's awesome! A great P Plater car. I dunno what your guys version of a P plater is, but for us it's when we can drive on our own but not fully licensed.

Just a question for those who drive manual/stick shift or whatever you call it: How long did it take you to get comfortable with driving? I have a driving lesson in a couple hours and I'm really not looking forward to it

LOL: stickshift. Don't stress, learning to drive manual seems impossible at first, but you'll definitely get the hang of it after a few goes. The main problem I had when I started driving was that I'd get it down pretty well in one session, then when I went back I would suck at it again. Only took maybe, 4 or 5 goes before it got pretty easy.

Volvo 240DL from 1990, it's basically a big grey rectangle. Everyone knows the one.
Paid $1000 cash in hand, don't remember how many miles were on it but there are 188k now. I feel like there were 150k-ish when I got it, but that was 4 years ago.
I love this thing to death, it's such a tank. I upgraded the sound system, had to do some routing in the back to fit the 6x9s but it was worth it. It cranks up so loud, it's awesome.
My family loves mine so much, we bought a second one in blue!

Yea this my third time out on the road. The first time I went out I stalled in the middle of a roundabout, panicked and stalled a few more times in front of about 4 cars straight after

I'm just having trouble gauging braking distance and gear changes, I guess it's just experience from now on huh

Wow!!! What a terrifying first experience! I was always paranoid something like that would happen to me. I guess the fact that I grew up in the countryside as opposed to the city really helped with avoiding things like that. Well done on not freaking out so badly you didn't want to try again!

As for braking distance etc, you're exactly right, it's just a case of experience. In a few months it'll be so second nature you'll laugh when you think of how difficult you found it in the beginning.

Yea I felt so bad after Well I went out with the instructor down a quiet industrial estate then he lead me onto the main road, I said I didn't think I was ready and I didn't want to do it but he said he didn't believe me :/

And thanks for the advice man, hopefully it won't be too long anyway

2003 (I think?) Toyota Highlander
Automatic
I think my dad bought it for around 10k (we share it, but I usually can use it whenever since he has a work truck).

I feel extremely lucky to be driving such a new car, but the only complaints I have are that it's an automatic (I find driving manual a lot more fun) and that it doesn't get the best gas mileage in the world.

i drive a 2002 pontiac grand prix SE. it had about 40,000 miles on it, when we got it. It gets great highway mileage, but not as good city mileage. I used to drive a Camry before, and the grand prix is a lot wider so that took a little bit to get used to.

1999 Ford Escort. Gold
Manual
l$1500 for it (and I also agreed to fix the seller's computer, which I did).
It had 13000 miles on it when I got it. From July 15 to this day, I have about 18200 miles on it.
I really enjoy it. It gets excellent gas mileage, and I like driving manual better. It actually feels good having a common car as opposed to a really flashy one. It's my first car. It was my 16th birthday present. The only real complaints I have on it, and they're only minor: The car is pretty small, and this wouldn't be a problem except I'm really tall and stout. People say I look like Mr. Incredible in his car when driving it (reference to a Disney Pixar movie). The other thing is that it does not have a CD player or a cassette player, so I have to take up my only DC power outlet to plug in my iPod with a plug-in radio tuner for my iPod. Overall, it's great.

It's modest, but I love it.

I live in argentina though. European cars have better handling than muscle cars. And they make almost no noize. IN my driving test, for the license we have to make a theorical and practical exam, while parking I made A mistake and my car turned off, I turned the engine again, the examinor was outside the car, he did not even notice this.
