Should I or Shouldn't I?

A big question lies before me. Cindy and I started talking about a month ago that the 1998 Ford Escort Wagon was starting to get pretty old and we’d possibly like to get rid of it before it starts costing a lot of money. Well, we waited too long. We just got an estimate over $1000 to make some necessary repairs.

In the meantime, a PT Cruiser has been made available. So the question is: should I or shouldn’t I?

PT CruiserIt’s a 2003, 2.4L Turbo with 85000 kilometres on it. It takes premium gasoline and has lots of get up and go. It has a leather interior, heated seats, sunroof, air conditioning, and power everything. You can see more pictures in our Photo Album. (It hasn’t been washed in a while, so it doesn’t quite gleam like it should.)

Its a tough question. Let me know what you think by posting a comment. By the way, in case you were wondering: Javens vote is YES!

    Ok I’ll jump in on this one.

    A friend at work has one, and he pointed me to …

    I’d say buy new, or foreign, (or at least foreign sounding since Honda and Toyota do most assembly in North America now.) My friend also mentioned that the Cruiser is very small. What space there is, doesn’t fit your stuff.

    Leave it to me to cast the negative vote, but it sounds like the one you are interested in has just come off warranty, the owner may be afraid. Can you get a full history? If any more than routine oil changes, I’d be leary.
