Time for a new car...

Nissan Altima

My old Saturn is on its last leg. So I'm looking for a new set of wheels. I stopped by a Nissan dealership today and saw an Altima there that was begging me to drive it home. Well, OK -- it was the dealer that was doing the begging, but I digress.

I'm looking to lease this time around. I bought my Saturn, but today I'm making payments to the service center to keep it running. The monthly is a little more than I'd like, but I've checked Edmunds, and it appears I've done a pretty good job talking them down as it is.

To offset the expenditure of a second car payment, I'm looking for 30 new customers for my web hosting service (or 15 that want the super-duper $20/month plan). Yes, you can find cheaper hosting elsewhere, but you won't find better hosting.

OK, you may find better hosting somewhere else. But aren't you tired of looking???

And hey, if you sign up with a yearly subscription, I may just bump your limits a bit as an extra thank you (since I can use that now to increase my down payment). And naturally, I have some Gmail invitations. First come, first serve.

Is it just me or are there more car commercials all of a sudden?

"on it’s last leg"??? http://angryflower.com/aposter.html

Interesting that you would go from a Saturn to a Nissan. Every Saturn owner I know is a die hard. Personally I'm a Honda person. My husbands Honda has never been in the shop for anything other than routine maintenance and it's got over 250,000 miles on it. The resale on Hondas is awesome too. With such high milegae a guy offered him 5 grand for it and it's a '94. In fact he begged my husband to sell it to him. I have NEVER met an unhappy Honda owner.

There's always been a lot of car commercials on TV (and on movie screens now..grr) but you probally haven't paid any attention to them until you've started looking for a car.

I really like that Saturn VUE. Not too sure about that belt transmission, though. I'm also a fan of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and I'm interested in the hyrid cars too. They say its takes a while to get used to the car becoming very quiet when the engine cuts off and everything runs off the battery.

I don't think you can go wrong with Nissan. I'm on my second one with no problems whatsoever.

I had a 240SX coupe for four years which had the same basic 2.4l engine. Wicked-reliable with a timing chain instead of a belt. Congrats.
