      My current low mileage 740 wagon could easily be a "forever" car for somebody. It's still a very comfortable and nice place to be, and will probably have reasonable running costs for many years. But...

      Unfortunately they were fairly slow, got crappy mileage (16/22 new epa, 18/23 pre 2008), pretty cramped, and were auto only. Would be an excellent platform for an LS or twin turbo swap, however....

      I would, if I had the cash laying around. Anybody want to buy a low mileage 740 wagon with a bypassed heater core? :banghead:

      I wonder what parts availability is like for a 24 year old...

      Focus Wagon: I've seen them loaded up with leather seats and a 5 speed.

      Volvo V50, V70, 850, 240. Really anything non-turbo with a 5 speed. Fuel economy will be in the 20s though.

      Saab 9-5 Aero or Volvo V70/S70 T5 5mt is probably your best bet.

      What are you driving now? A newer anything should be more reliable and probably efficient if you're driving that many miles. If you're looking to get out of your car, I'd look at any 2004+ Prius.

      Camry or ES300/330 is a good option. My sister has the Lexus and it's been a great car. Some Honda v6s have transmission problems.

      Strange, isn't it? I see these occasionally in Seattle, along with Brats with a truck topper. I don't get it, but i guess somebody does.

      Plenty of ej25s past year 2000 blow headgaskets too, a friend's 2004 Impreza recently needed them. The 80s GL and Loyale 1.8 motors also blew headgaskets, and I've even heard of failures on ej22s,...

      Not even remotely similar. This thing is probably narrower and lighter than a Dart. Palios are seriously not big cars.

      2004 Prius with high miles. Even if you have to spend a little more, they run forever with near-zero maintenance and will get 40-50 mpg no matter what.

      I'd think twice about selling it- how much will you get for it? Any used car will likely need work in the future. If the only problem is an exhaust rattle, I'd probably keep driving it. Have you done...
