I bought my first car back in April of 2004. A 1989 Toyota Camry LE, 2.5L V6. I loved this car! It 240,000km on it when I bought it, but the body and engine were in amazing shape. Sadly, I had to sell it to go back to school .
I love driving my Jeep Liberty.
It's got a peppy 3.7L with 210 HP and just gets around nimbly.
I know real Jeep afficionados will scoff that the Liberty is not a "real" Jeep.
I would agree with them, but I needed a little more comfort than the Wrangler provides as I have about a 45 minute commute each way.
I drive a 99 E250 Ford Full size Van. This is my mobil shop.
My personal vehicle is a 1994 Toyota T-100 country cadillac (Pickup Truck). 3L V6 that was seriously hammered by the reviews for too little horse power and torque. The only problem there is the cruise control gets spastic on steep hills. I hope it last another 100K miles.

I noticed some of your massive 3.0L + engines are only getting just over 200BHP, over here we have 2.0 putting out 200BHP+, we even have the Lancer Evo VIII putting out 400BHP from a 2.0!
Yeah, that's because engines designed for the US market are done so for durability, not power, hence you'll never see an Evo 8 that's done over 200k miles; a common figure on most Yank tanks

Up until two years ago, I was driving an old 83 Ford van. Had over 300,000 miles on it believe it or not. And, I was not one to change oil regularly at all. Can't say I changed it at all for the last 100,000 miles on it either. LOL, just added a quart here and there.
The last two years I've been driving a 1990 Chevy van, LXseries20, Starcraft. Now has over 140,000 miles and still running strong. Last year had the transmission overhauled. This van loves to be driven. Costly it is on gas though.
