1998 E0 Silver Frost (1998 - 2021, had 3L swap and many other goodies from FastCougar, sat for 4 years, traded in for Escape Hybrid)
2005 Saab 92-X Aero (2005 - 2020, mod to Stage 2, totaled by a guy running red light and t-boned me)
2006 Toyota Sienna AWD (2006 - still own)
2017 Honda Accord (2016 - 2019 lease)
2019 Subaru Outback Limited (still own)
2020 VW Tiguan 4-Motion (2020 - 2021, sold to Carvana for $2500 more than what we paid)
2020 Ford Escape Hybrid SE (traded the CSVT for it -- dealer offered $200, Ford had the $2000 trade in assistance, so $2200 toward the Escape)
2021 Toyota Rav4 Prime SE

Those new cars made in the past 2-3 years are amazing in terms of safety features. I enjoyed a lot on the manual for the CSVT and Saab 92-X Aero (basically a WRX clone), but the comfort level were no where to compare the newer cars. Other than the Rav4 Prime which we paid MSRP (well, I paid close to MSRP for the CSVT in 1998), almost every single car we acquired was at least $3000 - $5000 under MSRP. The days are now gone, and the cars are so expensive now!
