    You should get rid of that Honda. It's a lemon. Sorry. Once the transmission starts to go, you need to say goodbye...

    I would love to not have to own a car. I could probably manage it most of the time, because we're fairly close to public transport, but it would take me an hour to get to work and an hour back, whereas with my car it take 20 minutes. And during Ren Fest season I need a car, as even driving it takes me an hour to get to the grounds.

    Meh. I am thinking about just getting rid of it sooner than later.

    Seriously. Look into your state's Lemon Law. You may not have to pay for the car and you may be able to get the money you did pay for it back. If the frame was damaged in a prior accident and that information was not disclosed to you and you did not buy "as is" that is some serious business and the integrity of the vehicle is severely compromised.

    Actually, that whole 'take it to a tested mechanic' is something you should do on the test drive, there is absolutely no reason you can't make an informed decision, and takes a few cards out of a greedy salesman's hands.
    ...Then I ducked my head and the lights went out, and two guns blazed in the dark;
    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    I have two cars and I don't like either of them. They take too much space, too much time. Unnecessary money-sucking objects.

    Ugh... My car is slowly falling apart now. I'm really disappointed with Chevy here lately... And I was a die hard Chevy fanatic... Now I'm pretty sure I won't be buying another one for a long time. Every Chevy we've had has had some kind of electrical issue. I'm actually going to look at a car tonight to see if I like it enough to trade mine in on it...

    Here's the problem with Carfax... If someone doesn't file an insurance claim, it doesn't hit the Carfax report... I had two wrecks with my 94 Camaro. If you pull a Carfax on it though, it only reports one. One of them we did outside of insurance because we didn't want the insurance to go up. The other one, we put through insurance and it is the one that shows up....
