Re: What kind of car do you drive?

2000 camry--108000 mi. bought used (I too like them broken in).  Been thinking about a Yaris.   But the books say the Hundai Elantra is better.  I don't know why my type just got darker??????

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I have a 2007 Toyota Rav 4 V6 with 7 passenger seating, heated leather seats, dual game systems in the head rests, bluetooth, upgraded stereo system....absolutely love this vehicle!! I also own a 2002 Cheyvy malibu LS V 6 that is  fully loaded also...but it is for work only. Even approaching 100k mi, it is still a great car also!

MrMS has 2 vehicles: 1997 Toyota Corolla and a "monster truck"- Yukon XL. The Yukon stays parked unless he needs it for towing or hauling tools and wood and stuff around- though, it doesn't get horrible gas mileage for its size- about 18-20 mpg unless we're towing the trailer.
I think my poor old Camry will be put out to pasture in the next year or so, and we'll get a Prius (or Aptera if they're available). Something cool and efficient for a commuter car...
Edited to add: I forgot the other vehicle we own... a 14 foot canoe! Coolest wedding present ever... though it was quite hilarious when we tried to tie it on top of the Corolla.... Smiley Very Happy

Yeah, particularly in the last couple years, the acceleration has gone to pot.  At least, for the way I drive- I tend to accelerate gently and not let the RPMs get above 3 or so.  MrMS gets better acceleration out of it, but he's pretty heavy-footed, and the engine makes alarming rrRRRRRRrrrr noises when he does. (He says that's not a bad sound; I just have been in so many clunkers that I'm gunshy about noisy cars.)  It's especially bad when the AC is on- I have to turn off the AC to accelerate onto freeways or risk getting creamed...
OTOH, that's my only real complaint about the car- which isn't bad for an almost 16-year-old vehicle.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

06 Suzuki XL-7 ( the last year where they kept the - in the name)  bought new.  All the bells and whistles and I added the remote start alarm system as well as the parrot Bluetooth phone module.
07 Chrysler Aspen bought new a few months ago.  Again all the bells and whistles with the exception of NAV.  And I didn't want to pop the extra 2500 for the NAV so I put in my old Mio.  Probably have to upgrade that sometime since it kind of sucks in the car.  Works good on an airplane though.

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

2006 Toyota Solara Basic Model
4 cyl. so I get good MPG.
Only thing I hate is a lag of about 2 seconds when the gas pedal is stepped on.
According to Solara forums, it is normal and can be corrected.
But I will leave it as it is to prevent me from racing off at a complete stop. It'll save me some gas too!

Re: What kind of car do you drive?

I have a 2000 BMW M Roadster. I bought it in 2005 - came off a 5 year lease with only 7000 miles. It's all paid off - and is soooo much fun that I'm sure I'll drive it until I can't fix it! Smiley Wink
