I guess one thing would be my 1996 Ford Ranger, sport package. I haven't done one thing to it except, tires, brakes and oil. 204K and still running.

I didn't buy it, my parents did, brand new in 1989-a Chevy Caprice Classic.
After they passed on, my sister drove it for 10 years, then passed it on to me. I've had it for 2 years.
Only has 170,000 original miles on it, has never left me stranded, still runs great. Was always maintained so that definitely helped prolong its life.

Obviously my parents made a good purchase 21 years ago. Thanks Mom and Dad!

I would ahve to say the 93 Accord my wife insisted she wanted. I had never bought foreign brands but she drove that vehicle for 11 years with nothing but maintenance. She has driven her Camry now fore 6 years with same. i might just have to let her buy the vehicles it seems.

The best thing I ever bought was a membership to the dating site I met my fiance on. I'm a sap.

My GPS. I don't know how I ever survived without one! Computer and cell phone come in second.

The older models of Toyotas are not having issues or troubles like the newer ones, but I don't know what model years they started with problems. However I'm keeping this SUV for a while longer and enjoying it.
This is too funny! I was just about to write the same thing when I saw your post. I, too, have a 2001 Toyota Highlander. I hope it runs forever because I love it, and cannot think of a car more suited to my needs and comfort. It still looks new and has about 115000 miles on it.

A Black & Decker electric lawn mower back in the early 60's.
It transformed almost 2 acres of hay field into a lawn without much physical effort (other than the actual effort of walking behind it) , was light enough to rope-drop down a steep bank and pull back up and lasted almost 30 years.
I admit to attaching a metal splint across a rusted out part of the body to get the last 4 years out of it until the motor died.
I bought a new one but the new design incorporated too many new 'safety features' to protect us "idiot Americans" to make it half as good as the old style.
I can join in with the Ford Ranger crew.
13 years, 217,000 miles, not one repair other than usual....tires, brakes.
Sold it with the motor still purring like a contented kitten.
