Today I purchased a car to replace my 1993 Saturn SC2! A 2000 Subaru Impreza with only 28,000 miles! This isn't a fully loaded car, so I might have to do some customization, such as changing the radio and other upgrades.
It was fun looking at all the used cars out there. Dealing with pressure salesman was not fun. My favorite experience was in Framingham. A sales person wanted to sell me a Dodge Neon with 8,000 miles. However, I could not test drive the car since it was blocked in. Nevertheless, he wanted me to put down a deposit before I left. Also he was talking to a couple who were looking at a Jeep while he was going back to his manager. Good thing I didn't buy the Neon, as it didn't make the "Consumers Report Reliable Used Car" guide.

At 10:30 this morning a Tow truck from Tracy came and towed my 1993 Saturn SC 2. The car will be auctioned off at Capitol Auto Auctions with proceeds to be donated to the Salvation Army.
I purchased the car on September 12, 1994 with 19,936 miles. Today it had 133,484 miles. It was a fun car to drive, and sometime in the next few days I'll be purchasing a used car.
So far I test drove a Toyota Matrix, Toyota Celica, Toyota Camry, Pontiac Grand AM, PT Cruiser, and Mercury Cougar.

After a few months of looking at various cars, I have decided that a 2001 Toyota Celica will probably be the car I'll be buying.
Used Celicas are hard to find in New England. In particular a manuel certified pre owned 2001 Celica with low miles.

Saturn SC2 Last Ride
At 7:45am this morning my car died while driving to Boston on Route 2 near Waltham. This is the famous car that got me to and from California. It appears the problem might be the transmission, and I'll have to make a judgement call to decide if its worth fixing or is it time to buy a used car.
