The cheapest car you can own is a paid off car. Why not drive it till the wheels fall off?

I can't get over how "proud" all the car manufacturers are about their MPG.  I drive a 1999 Taurus I have always gotten at least 35-37 mpg.  Now, this car is 12 years old, so many of the new cars boast their "good "mileage. 25-40.  Something wrong with this picture?  Come on, where is all the new technology?  I can remember my Father telling us that there were carbonators in the 1940's that would allow a car to get 60 mpg.  but the oil companies were buying up the patents.  Was he right? and are they still doing this?  Come on Car manufactures...give us a better option!

You have to love the picture of the Mazda2 with the corroded 55 gal. drums in the background spilling chemicals on the ground.

In 2000, I bought an 8-yr-old Oldsmobile from a friend for $200.  It had been sitting at their camp in Alabama for awhile, and needed brake pads and shoes and a few minor repairs. Its physical condition was excellent.  I drove that car for 8 years, with very few problems (mostly just basic upkeep).  It got good gas mileage, too.  Then I bought a 1996 Toyota Camry for $2000, and spent about $500 on some basic repairs.  I've been driving that car for 4 years with great satisfaction.  The former owner has even offered to buy it back from me.  Insurance is cheaper when you drive a used car, and if you do your research before you buy, repairs are usually fairly inexpensive.  Buy good quality used cars and drive them until they don't run anymore.  THAT'S how to save money on "new" cars.

The cheapest car to own is the one that's paid for.  Unless the repairs cost more than the car is worth, and sometimes even if they do, it's still generally cheaper than even a relatively inexpensive new car.  Learn to work on your own car.  If you're struggling financially, don't incur more debt.  Just because you can (barely) make the monthly payments doesn't mean you can afford the car.

The Smart car does not get better gas mileage than all the other cars listed.

Stop Allowing Ridiculous Car Prices!

The American people should demand car prices to be slashed in half!  Do you realize the markup on these vehicles???

 

C'mon! 

 

Quit paying out the exorbitant prices for this cheap and usually recycled scrap metal and fake glass! 

 

Absurd!  No wonder our kids have no money today when their parents are leaving nothing but higher prices and poor quality products to show for it.

 

Get some backbone and stand up for your rights.

 

The car industry has been raking in trillions of dollars every year watching all of you slave away at our menial jobs laboring to pay these pieces of crap off for up to 20 years!

 

What the hell is wrong with you all that you cannot speak against such ludicrous acts by these charlatans!
