What type of vehicle(s) do you guys own?

I would find it interesting.


I drive and self maintain a 2005 Honda Accord EX-L. Looking at it in my driveway, its 8-years old.


Nothing great, but its a good car. With 155,### miles I'm kindof glad its the 4-cylinder version - would hate to pay out $2k/$3k for if the transmission failed.

2006 Honda Accord Ex. Not superfancy, but nicely serviceable and mine is a pretty red color. I bought it from my mom, who was the original owner.  Plus, it's paid off so yay for that.

Re: What type of vehicle(s) do you guys own?

2005 Jetta loaded, love my heated seats and mirrors.  I have had to replace the transmission (for a lot more than 2-3,000).  165000 miles, needs a/c fixed (works, fan only works sporadically, and its gets HOT here), trunk stuck closed, thinking of a new car...but I still love this one.  Will be taking in next week to get everything fixed.  Maybe 1-2 years to replace.  Still love Gretta the Jetta.

Re: What type of vehicle(s) do you guys own?

My daily driver is a 2009 VW Jetta. Other then that I have a 2004 BMW Z4 and a 1985 BMW 325E. I desperately want to sell the Jetta, but I'm waiting to get closer to 100k miles. Just 20k more to go! After that I really want a BMW X1 or maybe an Audi.
