Car Talk

So, I'm in the market for a new vehicle. I'm completely overwhelmed by the idea and have pretty much no idea where to start. So, in lieu of actually starting, I thought I'd put these question out there:

What do you like about your car?

What do you not like about your car?

What features/things do you frequently wish your car did/had?


Feel free to be as brief, or as, uh long-winded as you like. :-)

ditto cassette adapter or radio-frequency adapter. Both work nicely.

In LA the radio-frequency adapter was useless. Too many stations meant very poor quality due to interference. I tried several before i gave up and had my radio replaced with one that had an Aux-In.

Oh, I can imagine! In rural/suburban/not large cities I've never had a problem, though. If there's that many stations, I can usually find one I like. :-P

Cassette-adapters you may have to replace frequently though. Mine needs replacing and it will be my fourth since I started using ipods. I thought about the radio-frequency thing, but am worried there are too many stations in this area. So personally, a built in adapter for external music players would be nice.

Man, what are you doing to your cassette adapters?? I have had the same one for about 5 years now - no problems! However, I've gone through 2 CD players. :-P

Running them into the ground I guess! The actual tape just starts to wear out. Right now my bass is all screwy from it, which is why I need to replace again. What brand is yours?

no brand. or, off brand at least. Audiophase or something like that? Mike is using it at the moment. I usually just listen to the radio, if anything. I'm not in the car very long.

Ah, mine probably gets more use then. I use it almost everyday. Plus on relatively frequent trips to RI.

I used it constantly when I was living in NJ & MN. Now mike is using it constantly for his 2 hours a day in the car.
