    I didn't own a car for 8 years, but I needed to get one just recently. This INFP wanted reliability and fuel efficiency, and I wanted to pay cash and not have it be too spendy. Solution? A 2003 Toyota Corolla.




    cheers,
    Ian

    The Corolla was my first car. Quite indestructable, it won't fail you, unless you crash it into a house (which is what I did, still miss the car...)...

    I'm pretty much strictly utilitarian: affordability, price of maintenance and fueling, blah blah blah...

    But deep inside my heart, I'm still in love with the Volkswagen Polo (my first car, which my sister crashed 4 months after I bought it...), and also the old Renault 19

    I love my 2002 TOYOTA Camry, Hershey. He's (of course) brown and drives like a dream. This is my second Camry, the last was a she car, Honey. Before I had all economy, practical cars like a Civic and Escorts.

    My two cars:
    Old: White Chevrolet Caprice Classic. Fast, but people don't expect it. Draws just enough attention to avoid most accidents.
    New: White Ford ZX2. Cheap. Bloody. Freaking. Cheap. I bought it for 2000 bucks last July, it's a 2001 and had 69k miles on it. It's peppy enough, has a manual transmission, and uses a lot less gas. I can park it fearlessly, for if it is hit, it won't bother me much.

    Other cars I seriously considered: Prius & tC. I like the Fusion and Altima, but they're too big and pricey. The new Mustangs are attractive, but also pricey and take too much gas for a daily-driver. I like BMWs (particularly the 5-series), but they're not worth the money, let alone the headaches to maintain. I like the new (04+) S40, and if I lived in the snow country I'd get the one with AWD, but still pricey for commuting...

    I have no clue if this helps at all.

    I drive a Honda Civic in the ugliest color known to man.

    I was tired of driving a succession of 10-year-old cars that broke down all the time, so reliability was my #1 criterion. On that basis, I'm extremely pleased with my car. I don't think I would ever buy an expensive car because the utility of a $20,000 car and a $50,000 car are exactly the same. They all get you where you're going. All that's different are the looks and the bells and whistles. And cars depreciate, so it's not even like you're building equity in an expensive car.

    I guess the focus on utility and reliability could be said to be INTJ concerns.

    We bought a 2002 bare-bones basic Ford Escort 4 years ago after our Saturn was stolen and stripped.

    It's strictly a necessary, point-A-to-Point-B purchase.

    What I'd like? Either a Toyota Prius hybrid, or a VW that takes biodiesel, or a more advanced eco-friendly car when (if?) they become affordable.

    Good for you Ian! I love it.

    Is it automatic or manual?

    I've got a '94 Camry. I got it in the spring of 2005 and it had 32k miles on it (hooray for old people). I've got it at 65k now.

    I think sports cars are pretty hot, however, for myself and regular daily life, I love my Camry. If I could have any car in the world, I'd get a Spyder or something similar to it - small, sexy, fast, y'know... However, since I have to fund the car payments and gas usage, I'll go for the cheapest car that gets the best mileage.
