So I'm driving home last night and my transmission quits shifting. No 2nd, 4th or reverse. This is on top of trying to make a place for myself in a new company (the one that bought out my old one), the home owners assoc says the house must be painted and a bunch of repairs done, all on top of working a few extra jobs trying to pay up on the house. Crap, I got no time, money or patience for this...
So, eff it, I'm going to pick up something for $8K to $16K. What do I want?
A jeep wrangler? Always wanted one. 4WD is semi important but I could get by with a normal car.
One of those little toyota or honda econo-cars? Dont drive a lot but could save maybe $40 a week in gas over what I pay now.
Maybe a VW jetta or similar? Not much of a VW fan...
Low line Mustang? The Camaro would probably be laughing at it all the time...
Suzuki (mini jeep sort of thing) ?? Mileage and cheap?
Little fast and furious type car? I'm not 16 any more...
Pickup truck? Had one and liked the blazer idea better.
Another Blazer? Too boring after already having one.
Mini van? Don't need one but they seem sturdy and fairly good mileage.
Hummer h3? Friend has one. Seems like a better looking blazer.
What group am I missing? Man, I just don't know where I want to head. Any help out there? A 4wd or awd may win out just because a few times a year (maybe 1, maybe 5) I can't get to my house in a car. Have to walk a quarter mile or so.
