My 1991 Nissan Sentra has 144,000 miles and has never given me ANY trouble - period. And, the employees in Smyrna appreciate my business, although not very often. I am still contributing to the US economy. I still don't feel guilty. ;>)
I bought my 88 Accord USED. It now has over 250k on it and runs great!!! My Buick Century has been sitting in the driveway for over a year with a tranny that won't shift out of low. Eventually I'll creep it to a junk yard.
