My car (recently repaired, thanks for your comments) was stolen from in front of my house yesterday. Unbelievable. I guess old Honda Civics take 3 seconds to get into, at least that's what the police told me. I am hopeful in the next 15 days I have (insurance claim) it is somehow recovered and will be able to be ok, with minor repair. However, that probably is being very optimistic, even in my stage of dismay, do you have any suggestions to used cars that might be a good buy used? I loved my simple, high mileage (bought it new in 1996 because it got 40 miles to the gallon, nothing on it, manual trans, no air, roll up windows.) I have looked a little at used cars today, the Scion, Yaris, Civic- but even used, seem priced high for a little used, simple car, plus they have all this stuff on it. Any American cars I should be looking at? Good miles to the gallon, and simple is my priority, and am discouraged to see there isn't anything looking good. My ol' Civic was the perfect car for me, which is why I hung on to it. ( I am short and little and the size never bothered me.) Any advice would be appreciated. I am writing so you could laugh at my previous brakes anx, and then some thief makes off with it. I am so mad. Be well.
