A Dodge Neon. I drove it Cape Cod to north Boston and we had to get the X because I don't think the Neon was gonna make it back to the Cape lol. That car fell the heck apart at about 60K.

99 Saturn SL2 - loved it, was a great car, totalled in a 4-car smash up on the freeway a month and a half ago:(


Got this 2002 SL2 to replace it:


I had the 2002 for 3 weeks and it was acting up, the tranny was acting funny, the brakes were mushy. My husband Alex drove it for a day and said something really bad was getting ready to happen. I took advantage of the Saturn dealer's 30-day exchange policy (plus I had already taken it back to the service dept a few times already), the only catch is you have to pick something in their inventory, new or used. We were looking at a Honda Element and then we looked over a few spots and there sat a 2003 Xterra 2WD with 51,600 miles on it. Test drove it, fell in love. The money we spent purchasing the Saturn went toward the price of the X, so it worked out that the Saturn exchange paid for half the X's selling price smile

I still miss the 99 SL2 sometimes, in 77K miles the only thing I had to do to it aside from regular maintenance was replace a temeperature sensor ($15 and 10 minutes).

Isuzu Rodeo, my first 4WD. Back before they got all curvy and aerodynamic. Put 90k on it and then had to put in a new engine after I ran through too much water (yeah, I should have walked it first to check the depth) and bent a rod. After that (probably related to that), every month I had to replace something new--alternator, brakes, fuel pump, water pump. After a while, I figured I was sinking as much money into it each month as I'd make on new car payments, so I bought the XTerra.

(I didn't drive any new Rodeos or Troopers before I bought the XTerra, since there aren't any dealers within 100 miles of where I live.)

This was my last ride and I had a blast with it. But it was time to move on. I'm getting married and do a lot of outdoor stuff.

Previously I had a 1999 Nissan Maxima SE which I loved, it was a very reliable, sporty and fun car to drive. My wife totalled it a few months ago and my insurance gave me much more than I expected for it and I picked up the Xterra.

I'm a Nissan guy, I love their cars and trucks. The Maxima was the only car that I have owned, everything else in my life has been either a truck, Jeep or SUV, I just love to wheel!

I've owned a 78 CJ5, 98 Cherokee, 96 Tacoma, 94 Bronco, the Maxima and now the Xterra.

Bought my X to replace a 1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport. The Jeep was getting to the point where it was going to part me to death. And I just couldn't bear the thought of driving through a Minnesota winter in a soft top Jeep with a bad heater.

Prior to that I had a 1993 Nissan Sentra that had around 160,000 on it when I sold it and it still ran great. So it is good to be back to Nissan.

I had a 2004 Nissan Murano and what a gutless wonder it was. The CVT sapped the power, could barely pull my two 4-wheelers up a hill and was such a gas hog that I was happy to get 18 MPG out of the Xterra. I traded mine in on the X as soon as the tranny was making the death rattle that had already afflicted a co-workers Murano after about 20,000 miles. It did have a slick AWD system that made great rally cross four wheel drifts in the snow and did have a system similar to E-locker.
Before that, 2003 BMW 325Ci that I loved but quickly found the need for room that a coupe could never give.

1990 Isuzu Amigo 4x4


2000 Nissan Crew Cab


2004 Jeep Wrangler


There have been a number of others, but these are the ones I had photos readily available.

All had their pros/cons. Like the Xterra best. The 2000 Crew Cab was a close second.

Presiously owned vehicles is long and in some cases distinguished including:

1972 Datsun 240Z
1983 Toyota Supra

The last car was a 1996 Mazda 626 LX with V6 5spd and all the other toys. It was a great car until my son totalled it.

Crummy picture, but here was arguably one of my favorite former minimalist vehicles:



This car helped me through some bad times. At the time, we only had one car and I was counting on rides to work. Then, the place I was working closed down (fortunately, with sufficient warning for me to find another job). My new job was 30 miles away and none of my co-workers lived near me, so it was off to find a 2nd vehicle. With severance pay from my previous job, I had a $900 budget to get something reliable enough to make a 60 mile round trip each day.

After finding lots of barely running rustbuckets in my price range, a friend told us that her brother had this car just sitting around and might sell it. I ended up driving away with it for $400. It was 20 years old at the time and had about 75k miles on the odo. It ran reliably for two years, other than the long term effects of living in the salt belt (Indiana).

I'd buy another one for a fun vehicle any time.
