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...
  2 responses   Reasonably efficient, reliable, pleasant sedan/hatchback

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...
  1 response   Do-it-All Compromise

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...

Life style change upon retirement. Looking for a high MPG plug-in compact/small SUV with good ground clearance. Mileage, safety, and reliability are the primary consideration after driving comfort.

  2 responses   Thinking a higher mileage older Luxury SUV might be smarter than a 3 year off Lease?

Dumping 2011 CRV with tranny shutter at 40mph that will not go away with 3x flush.
Originally thinking off lease 3 year old: Rav4, CX5, Sportage or Santa FE.
Now thinking slightly older & higher milage Lexus NX200 or RX350 might save us $10K and give us the safety and...

It's finally time to replace my 2005 Subaru Legacy Wagon (not Outback). It has been the most reliable car I've ever owned, and I'd like to get something equally reliable. It didn't need anything except maintenance for 8 years. I'd like to keep the reliability, improve the gas mileage somewhat...

I'm having a heck of a time deciding what to do with our next vehicle purchase. We have a 2009 Toyota Sienna Limited that's on its way out, and frankly we haven't been all that impressed with it. Granted, we bought it used with 90k miles on it, but it's...

I'm in the market for a new used car. My criteria is that its a nice looking car, its reliable, but also important that its fun to drive and gives me enjoyment and not just another appliance (cough toyota cough). So this naturally brings me to mazda as my most likely...
