I am in the process of running my 3rd Saturn (SC2,SL1, and ION 4 door coupe) into the ground. I know they aren't making them anymore, but if you want a used car, find one. I did have to do about $500 in repairs at about 80K on my current one, but that's just because a lot of minor things went out at once (new wiper motor because sister tried to use the wipers when they were iced over, new brake drum, and new heater motor.)

My ex got the Kia Sportage in the divorce, and as much as i love my Saturn, i miss that car so much!! the BF has a Kia Rondo, which i also love. Whn i'm done with my current car, i'll look into Kia, i like the Kia Forte.

Just an FYI...

A "Beemer" or "Beamer" is a BMW Motorcycle.

A "Bimmer" is a BMW automobile.

Could that explain the lack of problems with the Bimmers smile

Bought a new Kia Optima a couple of months ago - traded my Chrysler 300 that I had for 8 years. I have to say, I am in love with my new car - the warranty was was ultimately sold me, but I also found I could get a fully loaded turbo model with the panoramic roof for close to what I paid for my 300 eight years ago. It has a really nice, sleek look to it as well - fun to drive. I think my favorite part is that it won't let me lock my keys (fob) in the car - who new the new cars had such cool features lol!

I had a new 2003 530 that I kept for 6 months due to reliability issues. It was in the shop twice for over 2 months of that time.

I had a new 2008 535 that I kept for 3 years (terrible mistake) that was in the shop in the upper teens for a total of about 10 months. I had a friend who had the V12 7 series for 2 months (I should say owned for 2 months as the dealership had it for 1.5 due to repairs). My understanding is the only car they make that is reliable is the naturally aspirated 3 series.

To be transparent... I have had several Audis and they were bullet proof and much more fun. I am biased towards Audi but the reliability is not something bias would impact.

Just my experience. I am glad you have been fortunate with yours.

So, Rusty, have you purchased the car yet? What did you buy? If not, what are you leaning toward?

Dear Mr A_G-DDD

Effective immediately, the American Man Card Association of America is revoking all privileges and benefits associated with your Man Card, which is to be surrendered upon receipt of this letter. In order to have your man card reinstated, you must appear before the panel of delegates, appointed by the local chapter of the American Man Card Association of America, and present valid argument why locking your keys in a running car is not an un-manly thing to do. You may bring any proof to back up your case.

For example, were you to drive a 1982 Pontica Trans-Am Smokey and the Bandit model, you would receive bonus points. If, for example, you drove a Pontiac Sunfire, points would be deducted. Your hearing is set for Monday, July 30, 2012, at the Hooter's location closest to your place of residence (yes, we know you live in your Mom's basement, points are deducted for that as well). If you are not familiar with the location of the nearest Hooters, well, then things just aren't looking good, are they?

Sincerely,

The American Man Card Association of America

Had you had a Smokey and the Bandit model, you would have merely had to jump in...rather than leaving a hazard of broken glass in your wake! whistle

Said litter/hazardous waste might consitute additional points AGAINST you! smirk

I have been driving Nissans for years.....never had a lick of trouble with any of 'em. I'm driving a 2007 Altima right now.....love the body style, the tinted windows....and I'm tellin' you....once you've gone to keyless ignition, you will NEVER go back....spoils you in a hurry. As long as my key is in my purse or on my person, I don't have to find it. I can unlock the car, the trunk, start the car without having to find it. I can't lock the key in the car or the trunk. I can start my car on cold winter days and then lock it while I go back in the house. But if I don't lock it and someone jumps in to steal it, when they get far enough away from the intelligent key in my purse, the car turns itself off. Oh and all Maximas and some Altimas have the Bose sound system....fabulous.
