Our Cars

Those who read my last story know I drive a Ford Escape. I love it but need to trade it in soon. The transmission shudders a bit at certain speeds, certain RPMs. I need to sell it before the transmission fails. It's got about 125K, 75K of which I put on it after I bought it used. I'm thinking of replacing it with the slightly larger Ford Edge, but definitely not the Explorer which has a bad reputation. I like Mazda, Hyundai and Honda crossover (small SUV) vehicles, too. It all depends on the year and the model... and price.

The mazda is great. I've always babied it, very rarely even going as fast as 65 MPH (though I don't change the oil so often).

Impressive that your Mazda is still reliable. We like our Mazda van - our main car.

We have four. They all work:

'74 VW (that some relative got for her)

'94 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2006 Camry that came with Matt

'88 Mazda pickup (around 230,000 miles so far and doing great)

I'm fixing them up. One is a classic 57 Chevy that will take a long time.

My Ford is the one I am working on next. My Toyota got totalled and so I bought it back to fix up (again - 2nd time totalled by someone who hit me).

So only 2 work.

Why so many vehicles?

In fact, we have 2 Fords now. 1 Chevy, 1 Mazda, 1 Toyota.

3 duallies, if you know what that means.

My last Ford lasted over 300,000 miles, so I bought another Ford. I'm happy.
