Lexus NX 300- great car, just too expensive, great front seats with support I love. This car has the bare mimum amount of space I need.
Subaru Outback- Front seats not as supportive as I expected, excellent cargo space, little concerned about long term reliability
Mercedes GLK 250- appreciate the...

I have driven an astro van for the past 20 years. I'm used to being large and tall in my car. I don't like sedans, they are too low. But I'm tired of getting 13mpg when I'm the only one in the car. I need a seat with good back...
  3 responses   Reliable, low-maintenance vehicle with good visibility for short, older driver
Member6689

Currently without a vehicle because previous car became a write-off courtesy of a drunk driver. Thankfully the car was unoccupied at the time. I am a 5 foot tall senior woman and will be the principal driver. I am most concerned with good visibility and low maintenance.

Ok this is a lot of variables. I have a prius now which I have camped in, and it was quite doable. I love the good gas mileage and the fact with it being a hybrid that I could, if need be, leave it running for a while if the...

reliability is key, I like to sit up high to see what is in front of me, but gas mileage is also important.

Subaru Imprezza hatchback & XV Crosstrek - love the CVT, good MPG prefer height of XV over Imp. Sort of blah interior. Dealbreaker: seats to long & uncomfortable for short legs (5'-1" tall).

I've got one of those VWs -- a 2012 JSW TDI surrounded by a cloud of toxic death each time I drive to the store. And, if rumors and court documents hold true, VW will soon ask for it back, while sending me flowers, a nice note and a big...

An idea of what I've been looking at are the Mazda3 Hatchback, Honda Fit, Ford Fusion Hybrid (not a hatchback), Prius. Somewhat sporty, but power is a low priority. I love the Subaru Impreza Hatchback, but I think it's just a little...

My husband is 6'2", and I'm 5'4". We have only one car, so finding one we can both be comfortable driving can be a challenge. Our Nissan has some "features" we're not that happy with. The panic button on the remote is very easy to mistakenly set off, just by...
