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.

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....

I currently own a beat up 2004 Hyundai Elantra GT and am looking for something fresh. Fortunately I've acquired a good job so I can afford to invest in a car that will last sometime, but I don't want to find myself in a long term loan as I am...

Subaru Impreza 2010 (used) -- front seat felt cramped, and there was no rear window wiper. Does anyone know if more recent models have the rear wiper?

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,...

The next would be fuel economy.
I'm not into hybrid yet because I think they have a long way to go before a standard is accepted and the cost of repairs are too high and the space...

Member6008

I street park in a city, so smaller is better all else equal, and I'll live with dings
Not commuting, and I can fix stuff, so reliability isn't the top concern to me (but replacing a driveline while parallel parked is probably not happening, so some reliability matters)

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...
