1991 Geo Metro! Accept no substitutes! Still gets 36 mpg and fun to drive. Why do the automakers refuse to make cars like these? No money for them, I guess.

1996 Acura RL. No issues whatsoever with the power train for the first 150,000 miles. Didn't spend a dime on engine or tranny repairs (only regular maintenance as recommended) for 15 years.
Recent checkup showed no issues. Engine compression is good as new.
I'll probably trade it in at 200k miles. In 2015! :)
