    I'm sure it's not the norm, but our Buick is a lemon. I call her "Apathetic Christine" because she dies randomly and nobody can find anything wrong.

    I learned how to drive in my mom's Buick. I did over $1000 worth of damage to it in an incident involving some trees. With the exception of needing a new side mirror, all the damage was cosmetic. We paid someone at a body shop to pound out the dents, and all was good. She still is driving it. The car has had no major issues, very little repair, runs great. I would totally have a Buick, but I hate hate hate the size.

    I would totally go for a Mini Cooper - its cute, great gas mileage, easy to park, etc. But I would worry about how it would handle in the Minnesota snow. My Saturn handles all right, but the Buick plows through snow and ice like it doesn't exist. :)

    I don't think I'd ever get a small car, even though they are so cute lol, but I take the turnpike and i-95 almost daily and I don't think it's safe. However, if I would mostly drive in town I would get it.
