    My neweat is a 2000 Tahoe and oldest is a 1992 Pontiac Sunbird. The Tahoe has 94k miles and the Pontiac has 36k origional miles. If I had been cycling longer maybe the bike would have more miles than the Pontiac. But I am not thinking about replacing the Pontiac unless I can get a EV for running around town. Can't sell the Tahoe till I get too old to travel.

    Now that's an example of putting the cart before the horse, regardless of the cost.

    I got 13 years out of an '86 Dodge. Drove it off the showroom floor in January '86, and sent it to the crusher in April '99. Been car-free ever since!

    Two, both 2005 models.
    Wife's a Toyota Camry, like your Avalon, is a super-nice car, and was first new car she had since we married.

    Mine a GMC Sierra Crew 1500, was assigned to my employer, but that relationship expired in September. It is also my bike hauler for trips and bike rescues around town.

    Now my newest bike is a 2007 specialized Crossroads Sport and oldest a 1973 Schwinn Cool Lemon Super Sport with others only slightly newer.

    Wife loves her Camry and has indicated she plans to keep a long long long time.

    PS: filled my truck up Saturday, was planning to only put $35 of fuel into the tank, at 20 gallons it was full and was less than $34, never in its history has this rig been filled for less. Its lifetime fuel average is 18.5 miles per gal.

    Mine - 2001 Chevy Astro w/ < 80K miles (gets little use except for trips)
    Wife's - 2001 Buick Le Sabre w < 60K miles (this is the "family car")
    "Son's" - 2000 Nissn Altima w/ >100K miles (he loses it to his younger brother when he heads to college next year)

    Last car we got rid of (to purchase the Altima in 2006) was a '94 Bonneville w/ 225K on it so hopefully these will all be around a while longer. Haven't had a car payment in over 20 years.

    Our newest vehicle is a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan with 159,000 miles on it.

    My daily driver is a 1997 Acura Integra with 126,000 miles.

    I am considering replacing the Caravan with a Honda CR-V.

    Last January my wife said we're going whole hog this time. So we have a 2008 Acura TL, for trips and weekend getaways.
    The everyday vehicle is a 1997 Chrysler Cirrus with only 105,000 miles.

    mostly old

    HI,
    I have two a 89 shadow , thats gasping and may code any time
    and a 87 Camry that runs like new.
    And I ain't buyin a new one till they are DOA and will not start.
    PS I don't think we should bail out detroit either ,sorry Guys n Gals, its a
    Life time of bad choices from management of the big three.
    Why does Toyota, Honda spend so much of their money on fuel efficiency and research, and the big three are just trying to cut cost and quality, without improving the product.
    MY 2 cents.

    Hers -2000 Mazda MPV

    Since I've been commuting, the Jetta rarely leaves the garage. My wife wants a new car, but she also wants a new Cannondale! I'm gonna push her towards the latter!

    About a year and a half ago we bought a new Honda Element. We picked it because it's short enough to fit in our garage and it will still carry our tandem on the inside.

    My wife drives a '97 Saturn SL1 with 140,000 miles. If the Saturn will carry her to work and back for 5 more years until her planned retirement we may have bought our last car.

    I have a 2007 Ford Escape, which I bought last summer to replace my '01 Chevy Tahoe, which I still haven't sold, which maybe is okay because I drove it here to Wyoming to settle some family estate business and haul stuff back to Washington, including a safe, which is going to be empty for a while because I bought that 2007 Ford Escape last summer.

    Gas was $4.20 in the summer and I just filled the Tahoe for the trip back for $1.74.9 per gallon. Makes the trip more affordable but the Tahoe's still a gas hog (and still for sale!).

    newest car is a 2008 toyota Prius.............haven't had car payments for years before this and other than the payments I love the Prius. Of course gas prices have dropped steadily since I purchased the vehicle, but what is new.

    1986 Honda Accord with 242K on the odometer has just been given to a non-profit.

    1997 Honda Accord with 75K on the odometer is my 'NEW' car, and it's GREAT.

    Despite the benefits of being 'Car Free' or 'Car Lite', I still want the freedom to go where I'm too lazy to ride on my bike, so a car is very important to me.

    Our newest car is 2-1/2 years old, a 2006 Honda Accord EX V-6 w/ a 6-speed manual transmission. You read that right, we bought a stick-shift Honda Accord. It can get 33 mph on the open highway and almost 27 in heavy stop-and-go traffic. I plan to keep it for a long time.
