I love my car, but it sort of parallels my love life - it's superficially perfect for me, and I adore it, but it's not good for me. It's a 2000 Grand Prix, I've had it since 2002...had to replace the engine in 2004, and ever since then, it's gotten the shittiest gas mileage in the city. I need to get something more fuel efficient.


Having a good day, Beav? I can't see my mom today, feeling crappy the way I am, but she came home yesterday, and I spent about 6 hrs. with her.

Well, there was lots of food. That was the highlight. I dunno, it just got to me. I think cause I got 3 hours sleep last night, so lots of little things got to me. Meh.

Tre - suck it up, man. You go in there tired and hungover - that's Rock and Roll, buddy.

It's black, and shiny and pretty (when freshly cleaned and waxed )....and it has radio controls on the steering wheel. I've never seen another car that has that. I keep thinking that switching to another car without it, I'm going to go insane, constantly pushing buttons that aren't there.

Another one would probably get better mileage, but not enough to justify itself, when there are much more economical options out there. And, it's getting older now, but I really only like the very early '00 models - they changed the body shape in 2004, and I don't like those as much. ilemma:

VP - Those are nice cars. Was the gas mileage good before the "repair"?

Does anyone else constantly confuse : and " now? I friggin pick the wrong one all the time. Friggin interference.

Yeah, it's pretty much over. My mother in law and my wife's aunt are still lingering. What happens is, people show up, grab the baby and start yelling in high pitched voices, so the poor kid gets scared and starts crying, then they start yelling to soothe her, and it just doesn't end. Poor kid was petrified all day.

it is a tough call, I have no attatchment to cars whatsoever. I've been through so many there's no point. I have an explorer now and I don't have a clue what year it is or anything, although I know it's older. my dad and brother are both mechanics so I'm a complete and total failure in their eyes.

On the old engine, with a mixture of hwy and city driving (probably 2:1, I was driving back and forth to classes several days a week back then), I was getting about 27 miles/gallon (keeping in mind that our gallons are slightly bigger than yours). I haven't even figured it out for this one, especially lately. I just know I go through gas at an appalling rate. When I got the new one, people kept telling me that new engines are hard on gas, and to give it a few thousand km. It never got better.

I have relatives like that, too. Tell them to use their *indoor* voices.

Snow, you have relatives who are mechanics??
