      I don't generally shift the car into first until it's at a complete stop. As I'm slowing down I'll usually select second so that I can go if the light turns green, I need to move, etc, until...

      You told this story twice in the same thread now. :laugh:

      I don't suppose I'll ever get rid of my first car, and my family kind of expects me to keep it forever so I suppose I'm stuck with it. ...

      well, I threw in some extra budget for drum brakes, and those little replacement window winders every other month so that you don't have to have vise grips on the doors. :beer::D

      not anti-anything, just like you I'm curious about what the OPs interest/ability is with a car like this.

      You know if he were talking about buying a $1500 dollar 93 Camry his advice here would be to just use it until it blows up and then junk it, not to have a $5k rainy day fund for the thing.

      For what they are, cars like the g20 and 6-cylinder Mercedes and BMWs don't get great fuel economy. Is the jag going to be even worse? Yeah, but look at any of these compared to the jeep. I would...

      Agreed, I rented one of those impalas once and the seats were pretty terrible. To my knowledge there was no impala"classic" like with the Malibu but that the all new impalas were 2014
