OK...off to google that one... never heard of it...
Cool...I found it. Cute car. Not sure who makes it. I do like that style of smaller cheap grocery getter.
We have several here and I would buy one if/when truck dies.
Civic 2 door hatchback...Saturn Ion (not available in Hatch :( ) and ford Focus hatch...I am not a Ford fan anymore...
Subaru has one but they are spendy. Ohh..Hyundai has a cute one also..:)

I drive a Chevrolet Tacuma ( Previously a Daewoo Tacuma). It is very cheap to maintain. I have free servicing which is handy to have.

Skoda is a company from czechoslovakia, but in later years have connections with Volkswagon . Many of the parts are VW.

Here...VW are a nice car sdbut have a reputation of being high maintenance as far as needing tuning...but this is just what I heard.
VW is not a car you can neglect.....
Not thinking we can get that car here...but...(clearing throat) I would trust any car make by those wonderful Czechoslovakians! (Reminder that I am 100% Czech from Hlavatce, Bohemia....:biggrinbounce2:

Question of the day till Chcuk posts a better one.

What kind of car do you drive?
What do you like/dislike about your vehicle?
A Saturn Vue, has a great place for "the boys" in the rear with a gate we installed. Gets great gas mileage avg 29-30 (I drive mostly back roads- no stopping and starting), and pretty low on maintenance. This is my 3rd Saturn, I got a sedan when they were a new car company in 1992, and drove that until it had over 200K on it, the I got my first Vue in 2002, and when going for an oil change one day, they offered me $3500 less than I paid for it towards a new one, so now I have a 2004 with 60K (I drive a lot). I cheaped out and didn't get the 4 wheel drive model (about $7K extra) and there are times I wish I had it, but when we bought Doc a new truck, we got 4WD on that so if the weather's nasty I can take it instead.

I don't drive anymore but my last car was a 1991 Toyota Turbo Supra 3 litre, I personally rebuilt the engine, gave her a larger turbo and a few other tweaks to get her a little more powerful :)

She was lovely, a real 'drivers car'....had to sell her when I was told to give up driving on medical advice. Her new owner wrapped her round a large pine tree 4 days after buying her. He couldn't handle her :bawling:

My Supra managed 34mpg average, she went through emissions testing without any problems and she often went above 140mph....however my all time favourite car has to be my drag racing car, a 1967 7.7 litre Trans Am with Nitrous....8.6 second standing quarter mile.

I used to drag race every weekend from 1980 thru 1989 at a local dragstrip, Santa Pod Raceway.

I miss the thrill and the adrenaline rush.
