  31 responses   Want another hybrid, but they seem to be either disappearing or not offering really great mileage
Rodney

I lease a 2013 Honda Civic hybrid. I'd get another, but Honda has discontinued it for 2016. I get about 35 MPG driving in D.C. traffic. I'll need to get a new lease this year.
  • The only other Honda hybrids are the Accord (which is probably outside my price range)...

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.

I'm looking...

  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...

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.

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
  9 responses   Dog/Camping/Grocery/Trip Hauler
mewri

A utilitarian hauler for dogs, camping/canoeing gear, groceries, etc. Easy access for a large, older dog is a must. Rear seating, don't much care. My Honda Element has fit the bill perfectly and would buy another in a heartbeat, but those with low-ish miles are few and far between. Looked...

Member5142

I am looking for a small SUV/Crossover with FWD. While I prefer AWD, the FWD vehicle will be towed on a dolly behind an RV. Right now, I have a Golf TDI which is a great car, but I'm tired of feeling like I'm sitting in a washtub. And, I'm...

Key Points: I'm 6'-6 1/2" (half my height in the upper body), and I need a car that I can sit upright in. Owing to developing arthritis in both knees - I don't want to have to climb down into the car, and I don't want to be looking out...

Member3379

My wife would really like a new car to replace her older Honda Accord. She thinks the Jukes are really cute, and that's what she would like. I also like the looks, kind of a mini Murano. (We own a Murano and are very happy with it).

She's interested...
  4 responses   Kia Soul ! vs. Hyundai Elantra GT?
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...

My mother is ready to replace her 2006 Honda Fit. It seems like every car and hatchback we look at is a "cave" when you try to see out the back and rear-sides -- small windows, big C pillars and high beltline. It's nerve wracking to back out of a...

I am 81 years old, wanting a VERY reliable car, as good as my 1997 Camry which has had scheduled services, needing no other services. I want that kind of car again, but mine has 135,000 miles and it looks and feels kind of old. I want something newer, and...

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

I'm looking for a reliable, used, family friendly car. I currently drive a Toyota Yaris, but with a five-month old, we're quickly outgrowing the amount of space that my little Yaris has to offer. I don't want to break the bank, but I don't want something that is going to...

I live exactly 1/4 of a mile from where I work. Unfortunately, it is in FL, and that is a very hot walk in a suit each day. I also have a bad back that prevents me from walking that far. My current vehicle is a 2015 Chevy Sonic. It...
