Help me choose a "new" car.
« on: August 25, 2014, 02:35:32 PM »
Hello, I need a little car buying advice. I am looking for a car to use to commute to work, 42 miles round trip. I sometimes need to shop for restaurant supplies, so a large trunk or cargo area is essential. I will be doing that trip for the next 18 months and then hope to retire. I have between $10 and $12 thousand to spend. I would like something safe, good gas mileage and reliable.

Eric

It's a couple of years old, but I think still pretty relevant:
