    My vehicles have to have the following:

    1. Four wheel drive

    2. Comfortable

    3. Not backed by government cash

    4. Very little rust in the undercarriage

    5. Decent tires

    Good luck finding one of those these days!

    BTW, you should go over to my Tea partier on AMTAK thread, that might interest you. Put Rev. Hellhound on ignore first though.

    Me too! Gas costs $0.00 0/100ths per gallon and there's no traffic.

    Unless you mean motorcycles.

    Yeah, I'd like to buy a Ford for the same reason if I can find the right product.

    This poll is multiple choice. Choose all that are really important to you.
    Economy and engine durability are #1 for me.
    Can I stick my hands in the engine compartment and have enough room to work is #2.

    Everything else is not as important.

    P.S. Asian cars are awesome.

    It's not getting much of a good reception from car/Harley lovers.

    Re: Most important criteria in buying a car

    The most important is economy of operation, which includes parts, accessibility, durability.
    This followed by good ride and handling.
    The least important is the "safety" features and the emission controls.
    Reasonably good taste in styling is a plus.
    Sadly, still no automotives Diesels for America.
    Score "one" for the environmentalists and zero for the American working man.
