Car shopping

I think the Mini Cooper is out, at least for my first car. Maybe I'll get it for my second car! I've been doing research and I can't find anything on safety. I found out that they didn't even test the 2007 in safety! Heck, I can't find safety reports for the 2006 either, only 2005 and below. I'm not going to buy a car when I don't know how it'll fare in an accident. *sigh*
Like I said, maybe my second car will be a Mini.
Been doing research on Fords, don't think I'll get a ford. I adored the Fusion, it drove well and it fits my needs but it's a Ford. It's too bad, because my sister-in-law worked for Ford and could have gotten me a deal.
So basically it's most likely down to the Civic and the Fit. Maybe I'll put the Accord on my list, it's a good car.

Just finished my homework. Yay procrastination!

Neville isn't doing well after the vet. The rescue didn't give him shots after 12 weeks and he needed them, so the vet gave him those. Then he got probed and blood taken. He was very squirmy and I think he sprained something when twisting because he limped a little bit last night. He's not limping now but he's walking slow, actually doesn't want to walk. It could be the stress, reactions to the shots, and his sprained muscle doing this. I'm keeping an eye on him, I hope I don't have to take him back to the vet but I will if I have to.

edit!!!
I'm going to test drive the Mini and ask about it. I'll kick myself if I don't. After test driving it and talking to the person I'll make a decision whether to pursue that car or not. We're going to Honda today to test the Fit and Civic.

I don't like the new mini purely on principal that it's not a *real* mini ;-)
geordiegirl has one though and she likes hers, though it's not the cooper version.

I do like my Vauxhall/Opel cars, they're cheap on parts and very common on our roads so they're also cheap to buy used, down side to them is the parts don't tend to last as long as the japanese cars so the maintenance is more frequent - which doesn't bother me since I do it myself but it would be a regular garage bill if I didn't...

When mentioning them out loud I just call them Minis. I don't hold them in the same thought as the real Cooper. I just like the car ;)
