After 11 years with my 2012 Mazda 3 with a manual, I sadly hit a deer. I'm currently dealing with insurance, but a broken headlight (although the bulbs still work), dented fender and hood was deemed a total loss. I hope to fix it myself and eventually get a rebuilt...

Our current adventure vehicle is a front wheel drive Honda Pilot. It's a great car that cannot make it up more severe terrain. We drive on a lot of logging roads and dirt / gravel / rock roads with an incline to get to hiking, dispersed campsites, firewood gathering, etc....

Manual transmission. Power. Potential for sporty suspension/handling. 70+ cu. feet of storage with rear seats folded down. I would settle for a large wagon, but prefer medium to smallish size.

I like an attractive car with cool paint colors and a fancy interior. I'm not going to get that with what I have to spend. I am currently in a 2007 Explorer that was great until it wasn't. Head gasket, valve gasket, and weird light issues on the inside (due...

I'm looking for a reliable, fun to drive, strong performer, AWD, sedan or wagon, greatly prefer a manual trans and a used car.

I like BMWs but in the last 5-10 years they have gotten heavy and overloaded with technology. I have a 2020 M340ix. It handles well, comfortable,...

A wagon or mid-size SUV. Reliability a must. Heated, supportive seats for long trips (My 07 VW Passat wagon is my current benchmark). Decent gas mileage. A decent radio that accepts phone/bluetooth connectivity.

Reliable. Radio. Headrests not intrusive, too much tilting forward (have had complaints about that). Good gas mileage.

Looking for used EX Ridgeline. Not sure between 2nd generation transmissions. Heard lots of negatives about Honda transmissions in general and mixed reviews between the 6 vs new 9 speed. Any thoughts?

We currently have an old Toyota pickup with 300 something miles. Original thought was to replace it but that's not an option right now. It's getting tired, but we will keep it for snow days and hauling.
We'd like a reasonably nice riding and handling car with a bit of...

In short, we need a minivan with about 8 inches of ground clearance and allwheel/four wheel drive. Cargo space and interior utility are priorities, along with mid to low 20s combined mpg.

We have used both our old Sienna and current Odyssey minivans well, but we've hit their limits...

My wagon has got to have a manual transmission, and not be too heavy/large. A Jetta GLX (VR6) would be more desirable than a V6 Passat, for example. Though I would prefer a smaller/lighter car, I want at least 50 cu. ft. of cargo volume (with rear seats down). I...
