Here's the deal:
My 1992 Mercury Sable Wagon is finally on the brink. It was grandmother owned and operated until August, 2003, when she graciously gave it up to her favorite grandson... me - sorry Paul. : )
When she handed it over it had a little over 20,000 miles on it...now it has 95,000. Its age is finally showing, and it might be time to move on to something a little more... modern.
So I need suggestions on a new (actually, used) car. I can't get a new new car because Connecticut charges property tax on cars. The newer the car, the higher the tax. And I don't want to pay the insurance rates on a new car, either.
Here are the guidelines:
- 2003- or 2004-ish
- good gas mileage (fueleconomy.gov is good for this) (I consider 30 good)
