you were to buy a new car now, what car would you buy and why?
Scion Xb - cheap, roomy, good gas milage
If money was not an object? A sports car that was a convertible.
I really like my Honda. It has been economical and reliable. Yet I'd like to drive something that had a bit more verve to it. I've been thinking my next car might be a volkswagen.
I might buy a diesel Liberty, or I might by a new Mustang for my husband, but I hear they're both kind of disappointing. Really, if I had the money to spend on vehicles, I'd use it to fix up the ones we've got.
I would buy a red van because I still need a van to help my kids move from place to place and I like red. It would be an American made van, at least nominally. It wouldn't be a Chrysler product because we Detroiters know that Chrysler is really a foreign company.
My idea of a car is a "suitcase on wheels". Since I don't need a new car, I have no interest in hypothetically shopping for one.
Probably a Mini Cooper because they're just so darn cute!
A brand new car or a new to me car? Brand new I'd probably go with a Pathfinder. New to me...hmmm, probably a 2000 Saturn SL.
If the environment and cost of operating weren't an issue, I'd get a big-ass Ford F-350 pickup. But since they are an issues, I'd probably get a four-door VW Jetta.
Another Honda Accord. My current one has over 200,000 miles and runs great. Plus there's enough room in it for me.
The same car I have, because I'm very happy with it.
