PostSubject: I need a vehicle, pretty fast   Wed Dec 31, 2014 8:38 pm

About 7 months ago, my ride broke down, and I decided I was going to wash my hands of it because I'm fed up with the constant problems and fixes. During that time, the associate pastor of my church was inflicted with a really rare form of neuropathy, which has left him unable to walk. He told me that the ride is mine unless I get another vehicle, or he begins to walk again. 

This past month, he has begun moving his legs around more and more, and has been regaining his balance, and upgrading from a wheelchair to a walker. He has told me that in January, he is looking to start driving again, and will be doing practice runs in the parking lot at church to see if he can do it.

Although, I'm thrilled that he is being healed, my anxiety levels have been climbing because I still have no dependable transportation once I give his truck back to him. I'm trying to sell my old truck. I proposed a deal to on online buyer about selling my Christian CD's. I may even sell my Playstation 3 and all the games. 

I have GOT to get another ride. I don't care what it looks like. I just don't want something that's going to break down every 300 miles.

It'll all work out. God looks out for His own and always takes care of us. I pray that He will make things happen quickly for you.

I don't know if you want any advice, but Japanese cars are usually pretty reliable (Toyota and Honda are way up there). But that's no help if you can't find anything cheap. It may be that God will lead you to the perfect bargain without having to make any sacrifice, or you may have to sell some stuff to get wheels. Either way, I pray God will lead you to the vehicle you need.

I agree with Driven. I grew up in a family of mechanics and have heard this over and over through the years - that Nissan and Toyota aren't perfect, but they spend much less time in the shop than Ford or Chevy. Shame, but it's what they've experienced and one of the reasons I've owned all Datsun/Nissans and Hondas and have been quite pleased.

I tried a used car dealership this morning. 4 and a half hours of my life I will never get back. It seemed promising that I might be able to get a car with just my trade in, but the further on I went, the louder my BS meter was getting. I realized that they were filling my head full of crap, so I found my way right back out the door.

I can't stand dealing with realtors and car dealers, some of the worst lying I have every had to suffer.  Still praying you will find something reliable and in your price range.

God has led me to a 2002 Honda CRV. I got it for 595 down, and it's not the greatest vehicle out there, but it runs (at least it does right now!!), and aside from a few minor issues like door locks and glove box locks, I at least have a way to get to work.

Not sure if it has the same tranny as the Civic but the 02-03 and somewhat 04 Civics were pretty bad for that. I got EXTREMELY lucky and got 200K out of mine. Have about 14K on the new tranny. Looks like the AC is the most troublesome item on the 2002 CRV. Overall, they are fairly solid vehicles though my 90 Accord did die a very unusual death (crankshaft bolt sheared off cruising on the interstate) after 9 years (172K). If you are at all handy, make sure you join Honda-Tech to get info on fixing any issues that arise.

Is the CR-V an auto or a manual? Glad you have a vehicle in either case. Honda is a very reliable brand, usually.

CRVs are all auto (at least the last 10 years). Manuals are getting scarcer all the time. It was a challenge in 99 to get a manual with my Accord (or any small/mid sized sedan that wasn't the lowest base model). Subarus still have some manual options.

I was pretty sure I'd seen manual CR-Vs from the 2002 era, so I googled, and it seems like there were manuals. I will refrain from commenting on the disappearance of manuals, as I have previously done so at length. Smile
