True.....true.

On the topic of cars....not the hot type. I have started to look for a new one. I have finally relented to look at foreign. I drove a mitsubiti today and really liked it. I liked the price even better.

Sorry but the best use of the dollers God gave, may not be an american car. Undecided

This time I am really going to get around and look alot before driveing one home.

I was just out looking for a car this last week. I came home with a 2000 Saturn SW2. I looked at several foreign cars first. The Hyndai was the best for gas mileage but I didn't feel comfortable in it. I liked the Toyotas a lot but the dealer is way to far for me to go to get there.

The Saturn was comfortable, looked good and runs great with really good EPA rating of 37 highway. Besides that I was able to get it at $2,000.00 below blue book and a warranty that I get beat. If anything major goes wrong with it, motor, transmission, etc, including it being totaled in an accident, I get another one of equal value.

I think that Chev was mostly a fincacial backer to what was supposed to be a "new" car company, but Saturn had to utilize alot of chev technology to get off the ground.


That and the whole no haggle thing bothers me........kind of takes the fun out of it. Grin

I just looked it up on the net. Saturn is a subsidiary of GM. I was told that they used Toyta technology. I don't know if that is true or not but I seem to remember an article in the local papers here about a big wig that left Toyota in Calif and came here to the factory to set it up with similar technology going into the cars. That was a very long time ago for my memory. It was when the local Saturn factory was being set up.

I can understand that. I looked at all the Escorts here. There were 5 of them on the same lot where I got the Saturn. All of them were pretty well worn out and abused. The seats felt like a hard wooden bench and the gas pedal had to be pushed to the floor just to get them up to 30 MPH and it took a whole city block to get them going that fast.

I paided 1,600 for mine, 5 years ago.  It only had 63,000 miles on it.  Now the poor car has 181,000 miles on it and runs like a champ, and no it doesn't smoke.  Course I've taken care of it too.

That's the problem with the used Escorts here. They weren't taken care of and they were driven as though they were a muscle car. One of my sons friends just got a small 4 cylinder car. He took it out the first week and ran it at 90 MPH in second gear ( an automatic ). Blew the rings and the head gasket. He put out $600.00 to get it fixed. He was told to take it easy on the car especially until the new rings got seated in. The first day back out of the shop he ran it at 90 MPH again then while parked, revved the engine up really high while in idle then slammed it into drive. Guess what happened.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
Nope not the transmission.

To many of the used cars in this area, especially the small ones have been treated that way.
