94 Town Car Signature = yes, especially if it had 300 hp & 5 speed automatic.
95 T Bird 4.6 V8 = yes, but this time don't expect the quality of the Town Car.
66 Mustang GT = yes without any hesitation, reservation, or imagination.
#4 of 73 Yes!

2000 Honda CR-V still chugging with 120K. I'm religious with maintenance and haven't had any major...whoops, not going to say it for fear of a jinx.
#5 of 73 Would I buy a Toyota again?

Absolutely! I have a 2002 Sequoia that we bought brand new and now has 170K miles on it and I will keep it until my mechanic can no longer keep it running. It has been an awesome car, driven from Calif to Georgia and everywhere in between! It is so comfortable and reliable! I will buy Toyota again. Wouldn't think twice about it! My husband has an 07 Tundra Crewmax, he has owned every other truck made. Ford, GMC, Dodge, Chevy and said he will NEVER buy anything but a Tundra from now on!

Both of us love our Subies and my little Honda S2000 still brings a grin from ear to ear after a long drive though the curviest roads I can find.
#7 of 73 Most Definitely!

I absolutely love my Cadillac DTS and my wife feels the same about her Buick LaCrosse. She was eyeing-up a loaded LaCrosse CXS at the Philly Auto Show.

I have a 05 mustang with 98,000 miles very fun to drive . Living in ohio with all the snow and salt on the road in the winter I thought that the paint would start to dull after 5 years but to my surprise it still shine like the day I drove it off the car lot minus a few door dings .would I buy another mustang definitely . Its like being in a club when ever you see another mustang you always wave or rev your engine with a smile.
#9 of 73 Yes and Maybe...

1975 2002A- Probably. I always wanted one and my son wants to use it when he gets his license. I still wish it was a stick.
1995 318ti- Definitely. With over 120K it has required virtually no repairs outside of scheduled maintenance. It looks brand new inside and out and always puts a smile on my face.
1999 Wrangler Sahara- Yes. Fun to drive and fairly reliable as well.
2004 X3 2.5- Yep. In over 90K all it has required is an SRS sensor(warranty) four tires, and pads and rotors at all four corners. My wife loves it, but I think she will replace it with a Mini Countryman in a couple of years.
2007 Mazdaspeed 3- Maybe/Maybe Not. Let me tell you, I have never been so ambivalent about a car in my entire life. I was not happy that it required a LF strut and a turbo before it hit 27K. That said, it has been fairly reliable since then, only needing a VVT repair pursuant to a TSB. A 23 mpg average is pretty decent considering that the engine -equipped with a Mazdaspeed Cold Air Intake- puts out 287 bhp. Next, a new set of Pirelli PZero All Season rubber improved the street handling considerably(along with my disposition), so I might just fit a set of Bilsteins as well as a set of track wheels/tires and see if it can last through another couple of HPDE seasons. By that point I might be able to justify/afford a used Cayman S...

Currently driving Kia Spectra5. I'll retire in a few years and will need a new car. Since Spectra is no longer made, my short list includes the spied Forte hatchback, Hyundai Veloster, Kia Soul, and perhaps Ford Fiesta or Honda Fit. Must be a small hatchback or wagon, no sedan.
