In order of ownership, and date purchased.
High school: 1972 Plymouth Scamp (1980) Too powerful for a 16 year old. college car 1: 1980 Chevy Citation (1984). Too dangerous for a Domino's delivery boy (me)... I crashed it.
college car 2: 1979 Subaru station wagon (1985). Biggest defect: wouldn't die
first real car: 1987 Acura Integra (1987) Not suited to off-road travel as I found
next car: 1988 Nissan Pathfinder (1990). Not suited for San Francisco.
next car: None for six months.
next car: 1990 Nissan Pathfinder (1992). Biggest defect: wouldn't die.
next car: 2000 Nissan Xterra (2001). Just wasn't quite there. Guzzled gas.
newest car: 1995 Toyota Landcruiser (2002). Purchsed Windsor, NSW, Australia.

Biggest problem: nothing! It's a diesel 5 speed. Now to get the second battery, additional road lights, and a second spare tire. Or is that tyre??? ;-)

What do you mean that a DEFECT is that the Pathfinder wouldn DIE? :) JMP

Actually not a defect at all... it prevented me blowing yet more $$$ on a new car.

Biggest 'defect' was that it was manual... so it wasn't fun to drive during the traffic jams of 1999 and 2000 during the Silicon Valley gold rush. :-)
