Just curious, what do you guys drive? Anyone had anything that is just dead reliable and isn’t $500 in repairs every time they do anything with it?
I have an 05 Ford Escape Hybrid and before that had a 2001 Nissan maxima. The escape has had an engine replacement (at 95,000 miles!) and various other repairs done. The maxima was just a total money pit. Now I find myself in an annoying situation where my escape blue books at $3k (body length scratches don’t help resale value) while I have somewhere around $10k into it and I probably have another costly repair tomorrow.
I would absolutely love to buy a small truck (ranger, colorado, canyon, etc.) but anything near what I can get out of the escape (or even a couple thousand more) is just going to be a money pit too.
