Q: Previous owner of Scion buying a new car

asked by on

My girlfriend needs a new car. Sadly, she hit a deer with her Scion, which she's sad about. It's over 301,000 miles and ran great. Something like a Toyota or early Scion. What do you think?

Sure, she had luck with her first one. Why not buy another one? Toyotas make great cars, let her get another one. Go to Craigslist, they got lots of cars for sale. I bought cars for my kids on Craigslist.
