1986 Volkswagen Cabriolet GTi from North America
Lulabell the cabriolet is a lifesaver!
Replaced the radiator at 199000km.
Replaced the alternator at 200000km.
I honestly owe this car my life, she was the best car ever. She ran extremely well, never let me down, and was always a cheap fix.
Extremely good on gas! And great in the winter, and even better in the summer with the top down! Everyone is always envious of anyone with a convertible in the summer, especially when it's as cute as this one!!
Unfortunately she lived a short life and ended her life in an accident, but saved mine miraculously; a very, very, VERY safe car. I recommend this car to anyone who likes to have fun in life and appreciates a good car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I hate to be the one to break it to you, but a motor vehicle is not a human being, they do not have genders, and 26 years for a car is actually quite a good run, not a short life.
Now a question you might be able to answer for me, as I've been wondering this for a long time. Why do some folks give their cars human names?
To the first commenter:
I am assuming you have possibly either driven dull vehicles or go through cars quickly. Many but not all people name their cars to establish a personal connection with it, because some cars have a personality, if you will. Sure, modern cars are typically soulless machines, but of the many cars I have owned, most have had names. But to each his own.
