I'm thinking along the same line as Bill, here. It'* nice to have a sentimental attachment to your car, and it has been a great car for you. However, long term, I do believe the newer car (boosted or not) would be better. You've got as much support in the 2000+ section as you do in the 90'*. I'd recommend the newer car.

Like already mentioned, lower miles and a newer car is better. Unless you get stuck with a payment you don't want. What do you like about your SE that the SSEI won't be able to do?

Car payments are no fun so I say you made a good choice if that is your reasoning. I haven't had any for over four years now and it is very relaxing. Ahhhhhhhh.

That being said, I'd really like a 2002 WS6 T/A! Maybe car payments wouldn't be so bad!!!

looks like an 02 boosted... since the parents said he could get it, Im thinking they were going to pay for it or there must have been some catch.

Nice, that car is pretty much identical to mine. I understand the attachment to the old car though as i lost my 94 to get the 02SSEi

Whoo, wasn't expecting this much response...

I would have paid for it, parents just said to pick one, (I'm not that spoiled)

There are sentimental values in my car, too many good times in that car...

And lower mileage and newer car doesn't alway mean reliablity.

After all, why replace a perfectly running car that hasn't failed me so far?

(btw, when I first drove it, I was devirginized of L67ness and I thought "That'* it?" )
