Re: Shopping for a New Car
FWIW, the Car Talk guys always pimp Subarus as being reliable and good cars for the money. Never owned one myself, but I would definitely look at them next time I purchase. A couple friends have been raving about Volkswagen turbo diesels (great performance and 50 mpg), so I might look at those as well. One caveat for you, Caveat: no matter the reputation, be careful of a car in the first year of a major reddesign. I bought a Toyota Camry based on reliability, but it was in the first year of a redesign. It runs great now, but only after the engine was replaced.
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
