2005 Dodge Magnum - to date, my favorite car. But the front end was killer. I chased rattles the entire time i owned it. - traded in
2012 Subaru Legacy - to date, my least favorite car - traded in
2012 Subaru WRX - midlife crisis car, Stage 2, Protuned by Kaizen Tuning - mostly Cobb with a Cobb AP, short-shifter and bushings, CAI and greddy sp elite exhaust. TOTALLED

The Sable is a very quiet comfortable cruiser that when paired with a 3.8L managed to give me 23 mixed and 32 highway...

1984 Pontiac Parisienne
1991 Saturn SL2
2000 Saturn SL2
2002 Saturn Vue -V6

The SL2's owed me nothing. I didn't want anything expensive, since it was parked on the streets of NYC.

The Pontiac was stolen twice. The 2000 Saturn SL2 was broken into twice, but I had a cut off switch, so they couldn't start it.

Saturn Vue was a problem, I was hoping they would take it. Lol.

After 15 years, finally got a garage spot in the building.

Just discovering this and other interesting topics.
1969 Yamaha 175 cc. dirt bike, used. My first vehicle. Rode it in all kinds of weather right up until deep snow, rather than take the bus.
1965 Mustang, used, my dad's old one.
1966 Mustang, used, my mom's old one.
1969? Renault 16, used. It spent a lot of time at the Renault garage, but I loved it.
Ford Pinto, used, don't remember the year.
Chevy Chevette, used, don't remember the year.
1983 Toyota Tercel!! My FIRST new car!
1992 Subaru Legacy Wagon, the year before the 1st Outback.
2002 Outback. My favorite car.
2018 Outback, a confused car. It doesn't know if it's a 4 door Saloon or an off road, go do fun things, vehicle.
My husband has had:
an old Alpine
1982 Toyota station wagon, new.
early 90's Impreza without 4 wheel drive,.
2013 Honda CRV.
We have had so few cars compared to many other postings. We live in a rust belt and drive them until they fall apart-- from rust.

Well I've had a few very interesting cars, such as:
1937 Rolls-Royce 25/30 Sedanca
1969 & 1973 VW Karmann Ghias, cabriolet
1962 Pontiac Tempest Convert. (4cyl w/4 barrel carb, 4 on the floor, tyranny/differential/rear mounted, flexible drive shaft mounted in a torque tube)
1966 Pontiac Tempest Sprint Convert (4 barrel quadrajet carb, 3 on the floor OHC, would do 7,000 rpm, 0 to 60 in low gear)
A bunch of Ford Taurus/Sables from 1986 through 2017, mostly very reliable, except for the 3.8 liter V6 that had head warp issues after warranty ran out.

I listed my wife's cars as she was a stay at home mom, and I bought ALL her cars.
Not to be overly PC here, but a stay-at-home mom has more than a full time job on her hands, and the idea that you as presumably the outside wage earner "bought" her cars for her is getting to be pretty archaic as of late - since, say, the 1970s or so.

Just sayin'

Carry on.
