I think it was her time

What do you have planned for the next set of wheels?

he means to say besides the obvious, anything really serious enough to call it quits? make sure you take the aftermarket head unit out before you get rid of it (if applies)

well, theres nothing major wrong with it but it has a few problems
like:
tranny slippage gettting worse daily
both cv axles need replacement
rear suspension is shot
3 confirmed fuel leaks
terrible mileage (18 mpg avg on 75%hwy 25% city)
my parents sick of sinking money into the car
rust
theres more i just cant think of it

and the whole reason the idea of junking it came up was becasue the tabs expired last month and we didnt want to renew them :(

but we got $125 for it so i was pleased

hah, well i average 18 mpg too, whats the problem rust is understandable...so wheres the replacement?!?!!? Its gotta be a bonne or GET OUT! muahah, jk

You know what I find to be the funniest part? The paint, is actually REALLY glossy where its not rusted not even any oxidation. IM REALLY CONFUSED!

how can someone keep the paint in such good condition and not kep a car from getting INSANELY rusty with only 108k!??!?
