Just some thoughts ramblin through the empty head tonight, Are newer cars worth the investment? I'm thinking after 91 or so. Think Insurance, payments, repairs that are somewhat costly compared to the older vehicles that we seem to hold so dear. Some of the repairs, I could do, don't have time. Don't have a diagnostic computer to attach it to. My wife Drives a minivan and every time it goes into the shop for some crazy thing that has happened to it, its expensive (again, compared to the old goodies) Granted, the newer stuff gets good mileage, How far do you have to drive to offset the difference! She drives it to and from here and there in a small town. So I don't think mileage is the biggest concern here. Course you get one of these diesels, they can do pretty well. Let me here it from the Brotherhood!
