Hey everyone,
I'm considering selling my 10 yo Ford Focus ZX5- I have loved, loved this car but it is getting to the age that a few things are wearing. It has been roomy, fun, fuel-efficient, and still looks good after all these years. It's been perfect.

  13 responses   My FIRST car! Reliability/low cost-to-own a must
Eeyore

Looking to buy my first car! I'm on a shoestring first-job budget too, but happily have enough saved to buy outright (with help from family). My main concerns are reliability and lifetime cost-to-own, specifically maintinence/repair costs, and to a lesser extent MPG. I'm hoping to find a car that'll last...

Looking at Honda Civic and CR-V. Really like the CR-V for roominess and interior as well as pretty good economy.
Wife wants smaller car with better gas mileage and top safety pick. So Civic looks good, but I'm still not sure.
Would be happy with a good used Civic for...

Have looked at Honda CRV and Nissan Rogue; I like both, mainly due to reliability, gas mileage and AWD. Toyota Rav4 and Kia Sportage would be 2nd choices in SUV department. In wagons, would consider Toyota Matrix and Subaru.

A member in California, United States

Looking to replace a 97 Civic that was rear-ended badly (rear seats pushed into front seats...glad it was just me in the car). It was a great, reliable car with 312k miles with normal maintenance (and lots of torn CV boots). Fun to drive, good handling (mild suspension work and...

I'm looking for a wagon or large hatchback that has a manual transmission. I prefer FWD. I do not need AWD as I know how to drive in the snow. Conventional gas engine is okay, as is diesel. I'm looking to seat 3 kids in the back (1 car seat,...

I am 6'6" - so interior space and head room is critical.
Second is reliability - my perfect car never needs to have work done except for oil change

Member5907

In about 2 months I will be moving way out to the country and will have a 45 mile commute to work, shopping etc. I want a hatchback or wagon that gets good gas mileage, has a comfortable ride (better than a RAV4 or CRV), and handles well on narrow...

I have had my 2001 Civic since new. I have a daughter that will be inheriting it at the end of the year. I have a 15 year old, wife, 18 month old and a dog. I need a car I can take them all in on mid to long...
  6 responses   Getting an Outback or Forester, but can't decide whether to replace my 2002 Tahoe or my 2006 Odyssey.
Member6076

I am single mom with two kids (7 and 11) and two cars, both of which get pretty lousy mileage. Would like to replace one of the current cars with either an Outback or Forester to use as my daily around-town/non-hauling vehicle. I live in the midwest with lots of...

Room to carry a bass. Don't want a full size truck or SUV

My preference would be for a car that gets close to 50 mpg real world mileage and big enough to carry 5 adults. A hatchback is preferable but not essential.

Member6576

Pretty basic search, I guess. Just looking for a car with really good cost-to-own per year, taking into account Fuel (18k miles a year, for us), insurance, maintenance and repairs, and depreciation. (Or replace depreciation with a similar metric representing increased repair costs year over year, since I'm fine holding...

I'm considering driving for uber and would like something that gets high city mpg. The roads in my city can be pretty rough, so rwd orsomething tough and durable would be a plus. I like to drive manual. I prefer smaller>larger vehicles as well, if a 4 seater miata existed,...

My 1995 Camry Wagon has been hit, and my insurer wont fix it. So I need a reliable replacement gear hauler. I really like wagons, but would be happy with a small SUV. Reliability and good driver visibility are my 2 main priorities. I've got about $10,000 to spend and...

Member6484

Given these two, albeit quite different looking, choices, which would someone who's looking for a very reliable, not gas guzzling, fun to drive, sporty-feeling, quality interior car pick?

I've test driven both, and am drawn to the Soul for the fun factor and the fact that it's different from...

I am looking for a hatchback like the matrix or mazda 3, but have heard some poor reviews about rust in the mazda 3. I tried the pontiac vibe, which apparently ls very similar to the matrix, but wasn't too impressed with the power or interior (front seat). My price...

Honda Fit: like versatility of interior space arrangements. Have a new Honda dealership near me.
Ford Fusion: Right size. Not sure about interior dash arrangement/buttons
Toyota Prius: I've had two of them and I really like the way the interior is set up. Reliability and low maintenance costs a big...
