I have to keep it as cheap as possible. My work is slow to non-existant and her Neon just ate a head gasket. I would just put a head gasket in it but I HATE working on Neons and it already leaks and burns oil and is on it's last leg.
I found a decent looking XJ for a grand but she drives from Utica to Flint for work and i'd like to get something better on gas than 18 mpg. Although the XJ would be a breeze to work on over a front wheel drive econobox.
