    wheels, engine, DVD player
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    If my kids get home, alive, and I still have some cash in my wallet, it's a great car.

    Safety followed by cost of operation.

    Re: Most important critera in buying a car

    Depends on what I want out of the vehicle.

    When I was looking for a truck, I wanted the following in order:

    4x4
    Standard transmission
    AC
    In decent shape - not a 'fixer upper'
    better than 10 mpg
    NOT white or any pastel color
    cloth seats, not vinyl or leather
    bucket seats instead of a full bench
    fog lights
    trailer hitch
    bed liner
    CD player or place for one



    When I was looking for my car, I wanted the following in order:
    Convertible
    Affordable
    Good shape
    AC
    Automatic top lower/raise
    Standard transmission
    NOT white or any pastel color
    cloth seats, not vinyl or leather
    Full back seat
    Decent sized trunk
    CD player or place for one

    Price, dependability.

    Purely economics. When I'm in more stable financial shape, then I'll get the flashy "this will get me laid" car.

    Re: Most important critera in buying a car

    I've only purchased one car in my life, and my criteria were price, dependability, and fuel economy. Mostly since I commute 75 miles one way to work.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
