Toyota seems like the new champion for our new century, at least in our heads when it comes to economical criteria like fuel consumption.
Toyota, Mazda, Honda etc you can rarely go wrong with the Japanese when it comes to long term reliability.

My wife drives the shuttlecraft. A Dodge Grand Caravan, we call it the Galileo 7.
You can always buy a digital dashboard online, or from some offline firm.

I have a 2001 Ford Tarus.

I would love to have a new Mustang.

I've looked at some but my experience with them is quirky, if something goes wrong, it really goes wrong!

Yes, my parents drove a Mazda when I was a child. I loved that car.
Japanese build the perfect car for the "normal" people, perfect, reliable, medium-sized verhicle and small cars.

And additionally they produce in a very efficient way. I remember many car manufacturer inviting Toyota consultants to optimize their production process in the 90s.

Oh yeah - the LEAN system. I'm aware they pioneered it back in the 1950s and it took other manufacturers decades to catch up.

They also use it in offices. It's a little less successful when applied to a non-standard non-repetitive process but...for manufacturing it's excellent.

'04 Mazda RX-8. Rotary-engined coolness.

Oh, and a Harley Nightster. It doesn't hover, though.
