You know it's time to start looking for a new car

[ #1922 ]

when the cost of the repairs you've had to have done (in the last 3 months alone) are close to what the bloody thing is worth.

Nov 2001 - Thermostat & water pump - $400
Dec 2001 - New transmission - $2300
Jan 2002 - New oil pan - $300

And you know what, as it sits in my garage, the bloody thing does not change gear properly - noticed that re-occurance in the last few day's. The "check engine" light came on today indicating some emissions related problem. When is it ever going to end.

The really f**king annoying thing is that the car itself is less than 5 years old and I still have 2 more car payments to make. It's a f**king lemon I swear.

Never going to buy a Ford again.

So on that note, tomorrow I'm off to look at PT Cruisers. Current opinion on a PT Cruiser is like Guinness - you either love it or you hate it. I love Guinness (actually Murphy's is my favorite tipple) and I think I'm taking a liking to PT Cruisers (in a London cab on steriods kind of way).
