A 1998 Mazda Protege
It has spent quite a bit of time in the shop. The check engine light has been on/off for the past three years. Don't worry though, cuz it's been on steady for the past year. Local dealership could not figure out what the problem was until last fall. Essentially, the repairs are more than the car is worth.

Until you said that I was all set to put you into a Mazda 3. More fun than your average bear in that class of car.
I personally find the Civic dashboard a little annoying and I can't see where the front of the car is from the drivers seat (that could be a being short thing).

I can get this car for $43.5K which is Edmunds TMV and can finance it for 60 mo 0%. My current car is paid for, in excellent condition, and has 65.5K on the clock.
Should I go for it?
Glad you decided to wait lemko. If you want to trade off your 02' Seville STS pal atleast drive the new 08' CTS. You also could find some very nice lightly used Caddy STS's. The 08' CTS, would be the way I'd go as you get a lot of car for the money. Maybe a CTS, might be worth the wait ?
#38 of 39 I don't think Lemko is a CTS kind of guy...

The CTS is one of those cars that is big on the outside and small on the inside. I don't why GM (and other automakers) think they need to put Dreadnought-class dashboards and center stacks in their cars. All the dashboard has to do these days is cover up the airbags, crash bar, and air ducts. The smart fortwo is roomier than any Cadillac, and the minimalist dash is part of that feeling of openness.
