Thread Name: BS: How good/bad is your car?
Subject: RE: BS: How good/bad is your car?
My first car - an Oldsmobile. I understand why they don't make them anymore.
No.2 - a Rambler - actually an American Motors Hornet. They stopped calling them Ramblers, but that's what it was. It was ok.
As for cars that they still make, my Chevy pickup was alright. My chevy Blazer had problems and I'd never buy another. My Jeep Wrangler was fun to drive but a piece of crap when it came to repairs, which were often and expensive. If I totalled all the repairs, I'd probably find that they equaled the original price of the car.
My Toyota Echo is the best car I've ever had. The problem is with the pedals. They're so close together that if I'm not careful, I end up stepping on the gas and brake at the same time. I hit a deer the other night, so it's in the shop. I'm driving a rental right now, a Dodge Dakota pickup truck. It's really comfortable, and I'd consider buying one. The only problem is that you can't fast forward the CD player. I have no idea how they overlooked that.
