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.

Love my 14' Mazda 6 with one exception, ingress and egress is awful for someone older or overweight. No matter how I adjust the seat I have to fall in to the car to get in most of the time and getting out is a chore too. Still,...

The number of repairs are probably my key factor in selecting a vehicle.
The next would be fuel economy.

We have outgrown our Honda Civic and are looking to replace it with something that can fit 4 adults, 2-3 dogs, and hiking gear. So far, the Subaru Outback and Forester seem to be the best options that I've seen, but they are pretty expensive cars so we are open...
