On my drive to work today, my exhaust broke. Again. (In a new place, though. Jason's welds were wonderful for the old break.) I drove through DC dragging my muffler behind and parked at work. I shimmied under the car and lashed the sections of tailpipe together with bailing wire, which held up for the drive back to Baltimore tonight.
And, of course, the air conditioning doesn't work.
And the trunk could be more watertight.
And the back window doesn't really go all the way up.
And there is a small, slow oil leak.
I think it's time for a new car. The lack air conditioning is going to kill me.
If I'm going to have a semi-hoopty car with no air conditioning, than it should be something with style like....
So, what should I get? I commute a lot, so gas mileage is important, and I feel the need to haul lots of stuff around, so I'd prefer a small SUV or a hatchback. A Prius would be perfect....except it costs a lot of money. I also like the Toyota Rav4. I refuse to buy new--used only. Does anyone have suggestions of vehicles I might like for storage capacity and gas mileage??
