    my mom is still having horrible luck with reliability of cars that she has gotten in the past and with the one she has now, i think she has an eagle talon right now, its got all kinds of problems including tranny input bearing going out and bad engine mount, and water pump going bad again already, clutch a year ago, and something else, and stuff keeps happening, every car she has ever gotten has problems and she's had them all, dodges, fords, chevies, etc,. and theyve all had problems, this is why i stay away from cars and wont dirve any cpet older RWD ones, and is why i scrap any FWD cars i get here, unless run good enough to sell or trade off,
    does anyone know of a reliable car near or in houston for sale ? im too far away to be of any help, but maybe someone on here near there knows of something maybe ?
    thanks
