Which Car?

I'm asking a question for my roommate. She's trying to decide between 2 cars, same price. Which should she choose? 1) '98 Subaru Forester S Series, 160k miles, Power everything, anti-lock brakes 2) '97 Volvo GLT 850 5-cyl Turbo wagon, 150k miles. Any experiences with either car? Opinions? Advice? Thanks.

I hate cars but...

I want a car that carries more than 5 passengers AND gets good fuel economy! I did see some similar recent posts on this question, but not explicitly including the more than 5 seating issue! Right now I drive a tiny civic hatch back. I don't care about having a BIG car, I just want a car that can carry more people than the members of my immediate family. I hate to switch from 35 mpg to the 18 that even the most efficient minivan provides. Any creative seating solutions (Optional rear bench? Back facing station wagon seating?) will be considered!

How much to get car repaired after attempted theft?

The used car that I had purchased on Thursday was broken into on Friday before I had registered it. They busted a window, got blood everywhere, stole the cd player, sirius radio, and then tried to hotwire it I guess because there are wires sticking out. I tried to start the car when I found it but the key got stuck in the ignition. It's an 88 Jeep Cherokee. Here's my problem... [more inside]

Physics, Car Wrecks, and Newton's Laws

I am interested in the physics of motor vehicle accidents. The most basic question I have is which of Newton's laws, if I am understanding them properly, is at work in the following situations: 1) You're driving in a straight line and suddenly you jerk the wheel in one direction. This makes the car start to roll. 2) You're driving and you fall asleep at the wheel, so the car drifts to one side. You wake up suddenly, jerk the wheel in the opposite direction, and the car starts to roll. 3) You round a sharp curve too fast and roll the car. If anybody would like to give detailed explanations of the physics of each of these situations, hopefully without calculus, that would be great, as well. thanks!

Temporary tags for transporting a car from TN to CA?

I have a car that has been sitting parked for 6 months in Nashville, TN and the tags have expired. I will be going this week to drive it to my new place in San Jose, CA. I know that I will have to pay a few hundred bucks to register it in CA when I get there and would like to avoid paying to register for a full year in TN when I only need valid pates for a few days. I've done some searching on the TN website and can't find any information if there is any sort of temporary tag (even 10 days is more than enough) that would get me through. Does anyone have experience with this? Any ideas on what my options might be?

Advice for Dealing with Car Accident Stress

Yesterday I caused a car accident. I'm a college sophomore and I've never been in a car wreck before. I have liability insurance so it only covers the other persons car and its going to cost $1250 to fix my car which I have no choice but to fix. I also have to appear in court next month to deal with the ticket or whatever. The whole incident has just weighed on my heavily. I can't get any work done, I am having trouble sleeping. I just feel awful. Does anyone have any advice on dealing with this kind of situation?
