Snowblaster99

I'm attracted to the 2010-2011 Nissan ALTIMA COUPE, 2.5 litre, I would also consider the 3.5 litre, more fun but I hear its a bit thirsty. I really like the styling of the Altima Coupe and it seems to get a very good reliability report from car mags and websites....

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,...

Rons1941

I currently have a 2012 VW Tiguan and am not real happy with it. "German Engineering" seems to have failed here. I leaks, squeeks, has wind noise and the ride is a bit harsh.
I have looked at a few different models including the Ford Escape, the Honda CRV, and...

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.

I'm looking for a reliable car that doesn't guzzle gas, that can handle mountain roads (i.e., has a little pep) and that is fun to drive. So far I have driven (and eliminated) a 2014 Kia Soul, a 2012 Honda Civic and a 2015 Honda Fit. I also drove a...

Even mix of city and highway driving - more rear passenger seat room will be needed for the pair of vertically-expanding spawn; I want some power and decent handling. Driver two holds rear parking sensor (or rear camera) and passenger safety in high priority. A bit ( not too much)...

Member6434

Our 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee was rear ended and totaled. The Jeep didn't look too bad other than the bumper cover, but the frame rails were unfortunately bent. It was driven by our au pair for our two girls. Liked that it was 4WD, roomy, built like a tank and...

My current Chevy Prizm is almost at 200,000 miles and will need to be replaced soon. I love its fuel economy and reliability (no major repairs up until this point), but its winter performance leaves a lot to be desired. I live in a snowy area and have a long...

Looking to start a family soon and need something bigger than a sedan but as compact as possible for an SUV that is easy to handle and park. I'd like a certified pre-owned for best value. From online ratings and reviews, the CRV seems like the clear winner and logical...
