Any feedback from the groupies?????
Have owned Toyotas and Hondas going on nearly 30 years now, and they're wonderful autos overall. Have a '97 Toyota 4Runner with 190K miles and still going strong. My Hondas have also given me similar life and stress-free ownership. More than the mpg, I've enjoyed the reliability of them all. Good luck with your search.

Our first "non-american made" vehicle was a 2006 Toyota Prius. Bought it new and it now has over 140,000 miles and going strong. We are thinking at least another 140,000. It has been wrecked a couple of times and survived. And the mpg has deteriorated over the years from 52 mpg to 43. But still... This is Rebecca's car - I still like my pick up trucks.

Still well below normal temps for this time of year, but we're thankful the brunt of Sandy was blunted in our area. Some cold, cloudy, and windy weather is far better than the pour souls trying to get back on track in NY, NJ, and beyond.

To ease the cold weather crunch we're feeling, however, an airplane with our name on it (figuratively, at least) is heading south to MCO come Thursday morning. We're ready!

Kathy - so glad to hear the doctor gave you the all clear except for the aches & pains. Praying that will go away quickly.

I have a Nissan Murano. Can't say it's the best on gas mileage because it is an SUV but it's been a really good car & I'll get another one after I finish driving this one into the ground! It's a 2003 with 89K miles on it so it still has several good years left in it. I've owned a Nissan Altima. I really liked that car too & it did get good gas mileage. My niece has one now & really likes it. You can't go wrong with a Honda either. DH just got rid of our '99 Accord in the spring. It was a great car right up until this last year & then it did start to have major repair issues. He traded it in for a Honda Civic. He's been very happy with that car so far. He has a long commute & he says it gets very good gas mileage. Happy shopping!

Kathy, I'm so glad that you are not in any pain. And you are turning your lemons into lemonade!
New car shopping!!

I am a Nissan/Datsun (shows how old I am!) kind of gal. The 2013 Nissan Altima gets excellent gas mileage.
Enjoy!

Saw some really nice airplanes today, but did not stay very long. . . but long enough for my stiff muscles. The carlot we used before has changed again from a Chev/Buick dealer to Chrysler/Dodge, so we did not even stop and look. Disappointed us in a way, but I am sure we will look next weekend or possibly in between.

Have had a nice day today, although we had a storm this afternoon with some slight hail, but not very big, so am not worried about any damage.

Thanks, for the advice on the foreign car issue. I can assure you it will not be a SUV type vehicle. I don't care for them plus that is what hit me in the Monte Carlo!! I have heard of the Altima and will check that out. Keep the opinions coming and thanks.

Hi Groupies! Doing a little catch up after having a trip to WDW and then a rather crazy week since getting back. (We did fit in a quick stop at the Lodge which was lovely as ever!). We first had a stop in MN were DH and I met with his Dr. for a follow up on his surgery. We learned that when the additional testing was done on the lymph nodes they discovered that it were in fact 2 of 42 rather than just 1 that tested positive for cancer. However the Dr. still remains optimistic of a postive outcome with the hormone therapy he is recommending for the next 2 years. We just try and remain positive and will continue the fight.

Loved this DLI!!!! While looking at the pictures I kept trying to figure out what my boys would think of a costume. I couldn't decide if they'd show off or just sit and refuse to move.

There's rarely been a dog I've met that I didn't like but I gotta say Corgi's have absolutely won me over. Charming Clowns was the description I found when first learning about the Cardigan Corgi's and it's absolutely true!!

This will be our longest stay so far 9 days & 8 glorious nights.
Awesome!!! Our trip was supposed to be 8 nights but last minute turned into 9. It felt like a decadent luxury to have so much time!!

And the latest word is that DCL has initiated a full blown inquiry about the two fateful cruises that were sailed into the wake of Sandy.
First - let me add my welcome to the Groupies! And what a nightmare cruise. I would have been furious also.

I love Monsters Inc. Thank you for the heads up!
I find that movie facinating. But rather different from watching a movie "on the beach"!

So glad you're ok Kathy!!! How scary! I hope that the aches and pains go away quickly and that they remain the worst you have to deal with. And the new car shopping. I realized just a few months ago that since I sold my Mazda 626 many years ago I've been driving American made. And always happy with my selections. There are many domestic models that get great gas mileage too - mostly GM. So - can't help with any foreign model recommendations but hope you have fun with the search.

I have sorta been missing on the groupies for the past couple days. Praying for the Drs. prognosis to be on track and your DH comes out all the stronger for it.

KAT You know you have my prayers. Stay strong, live well friend.

Muush you're not the only one who remembers the old "Datsun" label.
I had an old Datzun 240z for a hot minute. It was actually my older brothers but I happened to be able to take advantage of it when he enlisted in the Navy and had to do basic training. Wonderful sister that I am, I stepped up to the plate and offered to take care of it. the sacrafices we make for our loved ones.

Anyhoo, we still love our nissans. Sid has a 17 year old maxima with 250K miles on it, I have a nissan rougue and the had an altima. He also had a classic ford mustang that we had to genuflect upon passing but that's another story.

Ahhhhh. Datsun 240Z. Sweet car. I worked for a doc who had a 260Z and he let me drive it about once a week.
But it was an automatic!!! What in the world was that man thinking??

I remember Datsun too
My cousin loved those Datsun 240z's. He had 2. I remember riding with him once and rocking to some Molly Hatchet, Flirting With Disaster

I always wanted at 77 Black Trans Am with the gold bird on the hood(like the Smokey and the Bandit version). Starting to get a recurring theme here, redneck

A buddy that is a CM from AL. who once worked at WL(now at Chef Mickeys) told me he didnt consider me to be a redneck, but rather a hillbilly. I asked him the difference, he explained redneck was a state of mind, hillbilly was a way of life. I guess thats a compliment

Not a 77 Trans Am, but the 32 year old car I referenced in an earlier post is an '81 Camaro I bought new off the show room floor in Waco, Texas. Twenty years ago I thought about selling it, but just could not make myself do it. Now it is part of the family and getting rid of it is not an option. It has the t-roof and the still operable 8-track tape player and loves the open highway.

Never had a Datsun.

Not sure about that redneck/hillbilly comment, but I guess we will go with compliment.
