We will likely want to replace it with a less thirsty car; my inclination is to get something like a 4-year-old Mazda 3 with automatic transmission (at soul_diaspora's request!).
I have a few requests for y'all:
- Recommended ways of getting rid of the old car, preferably receiving some cash for it.
- Recommended sources for a vehicle, and/or for specific kinds of vehicle.
- Recommended mechanics etc. to check out prospective vehicles.
