I drive a Toyota Camry 1998 model with 170K on the clock. Has served me well over the 8 years I've owned it. Reckon it has another 100K in it.

Nothing but Ford XR goodness!

  




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

The Geek Mobile is almost new again! After $2,500 this week we have a new cam belt, fan belt, water pump, water seal, 100,000 km service complete, all fluids and filters changed...

Yes, it seems it cost more for a 100,000 service on a Chrysler than to buy a second hand Japanese import :(

IlDuce: My most recently purchased car, a 1998 Ford Mondeo, when it came time to sell, nobody wanted it. I dropped the price down and down, and in the end it was $300 and STILL nobody wanted it, so I took the goodies off and kicked it in, then took it to the car crusher.


Wow... It was a 12 year old car. Unbelievable how something that is (most of the times) the second most expensive purchase some people make comes down to nothing.

They seem to be a very nice car when they have low milage on them but when I was looking at older Mondeos last time I went car shopping they appeared to be notorious for oil leaks, and we are just in the process of getting rid of one from the fleet at work because it is costing a fortune every time it goes for a warrant or service.

I think I'll stick with Japanese myself, although I have to admit that I wouldn't mind giving Skoda a try.
