sad...but true

my car has taken its final crap. it's been a good vehicle...but now i'm heading back to the world of car payments.

so it's a toss up between the Nissan Murano, Honda Pilot or the Chrysler Pacifica.

Chrysler is having a special: 60 months 0% financing and no payment til October. but it's still a chrysler...

what to do?

Would you consider a hybrid? I'm kicking myself for not going through with that plan when I bought my car.

OMGGGGGGGGGGG, I LOOOOOOOOOOOVE the Murano's. If I didn't already have a truck that I LOVE I would totally get a Murano. I love those!!!

I would probably lean towards the Murano.

Are you looking for brand new or slightly used?

When it was looking like my car may be totaled I was looking around and there were a couple of Jeep Liberties up at Thompsons Placerville - a 2002 and a 2003 I think that were reasonably priced, this was about 3 weeks ago so I don't know if they still have them or not. I know the service manager there & he said that they were very reliable cars. I completely trust him since he's been a friend of my family longer than I've been alive

P.S. You drove an explorer, right? So do I.
What year was your explorer and what happened? I'm just curious to estimate what more I can expect from mine. It's getting fairly old (its a 1995).

hi 'nessa...94. i found someone to fix the clutch for $300. that'll buy me some more time...i have zero intention of selling my car becuase it's disgusting. full of hair, dirt, things that are mysterious, etc...i plan on donating it to an animal sanctuary when it's time to put it to rest.

yeah...i love hte murano and definetly used. the pilot is just SO much more reliable.

hybrids good but i'd only buy the toyota hybrid car. the SUV's aren't worth the money.

A friend of mine just bought a 2003 or 2004 pacifica, he loves it so much that he went ahead and sold his big ass truck because the Pacifica handled so well! It even drove better in the foot of snow we had just recently!

Oh, and, the Murano's are fuckin' ugly, gross.

Hmmm well I think you should go with your heart anything is better for the enviornment than a 1994 explorer so I'd go for something to reduce your carbon footprint. Obviously with your pretty dog you need some space, but there are cars that would work. I think they are the best, because so much better for the enviornment. Or you could plant ten trees and get an another suv.hahah
