a mixed blessing fdp - can't afford a new one, but this one runs like it'll never stop

....just a couple more miles than my 99 Durango - it has 210,000. The car I bought six months ago already has 11,000 miles on it!

that's a lot of miles for a Durango - you sure got the pick of the litter with yours!!!

I was very fortunate, This Camry was my 3rd choice at an auction 3 years ago but the price on the other 2 far exceeded their values so I got this. It came with 215,000 miles on it $4400 - have spent about $2000 since then for brakes, tires and rack and pinion - but it really does run like a dream.

in 82, I bought the first car to have an EPA est highway mileage of 55 mpg!!!!
It was the Honda Civic FE (I guess fuel economy). I usually averaged mid to upper 30's in mixed actual mpg driving - but I drove it "hard and put it away wet"...:-))
In just highway mpg I usually drove about 80 and still got mid 40's mpg. - twice what I get in my Camry now in mostly highway
Mar 19 2008 17:01 GMT LisaSam67
lol at 80 we get about 15mpg in the burban.... not bad for a big huge people mover

it has a smart engine tho..... as soon as it doesn't need all 8 cylinders it switches to just four! neat huh!
Mar 19 2008 17:02 GMT LisaSam67
oh and it is set up to take the E85 fuel? whatever that is
no one in nor cal sells it yet tho
supposed to be "green" i guess ;-)
