"Expectations raised by you. Is your next car going to be that pinto you drove in high school?"


Did you see my recent post on a different board about the new cars I've purchased since my first full time job out of college, way back in the day? Here are the details as previously posted:

1982 Toyota Tercel - $6.2K
1988 Toyota Corolla - $10.8K
1994 GEO Prizm - $14.8
2001 Honda CR-V - $19.1K
2011 Honda CR-V - $23.6K

Total cost $74.5K; average cost $14.9K

So I would say my vehicle expectations, inexpensive and dependable, not changed at all in thw last 30+ years. Have yours?
