I my prius touring edition. Just got it 3 months ago..... spend 1/2 as much for gas as with my old civic....

what ever car you get, make sure it has stability control (prevents skidding).

also, get a consumer reports to find out which cars are reliable and safe....

depends what kind of car you are looking for... we looked at consumer reports, crash tests, reliability etc... before buying

for a small sedan
Toyota corrolla and Honda Civic rate top, if you want a "fun to drive car", Mazda 3 is recommended by Consumer reports... thats the one we ended up getting.... but dh's family has Civics and loves them...

for a larger family sedan
Toyota Camry appears tops with Honda Acord very good too...
we got a Camry which we love, Dhs family has had Acords for years and loves them...

not sure about SUV's... Subaru's are suppose to be good rugged cars...

Anything Honda.

My Civic has taken a beating from me and is going on 110,000 miles (and it's less than 5 years old!) It's held up great and I've had basically no problems other than routine maintenance.

We just bought a loaded 2007 CR-V, too - love the Hondas! We love that car, too.

I think Toyotas are also well made, but I prefer Honda.

my civic had 200k when I finally got rid of it. Both toyotas and hondas are overall the darlings of consumer reports.... they are usually ranked really well. I believe only a few of the SUV models may have lower ratings.

It definitely is a consumer reports thing. the car buying guide is so valuable! I still love my very comfy prius... SOOOOO happy with that car!!!!

My stepmother has a Scion Tc (the car) and I was driving it upstate and LOVED it ! ! ! It's made by Toyota. My dad is a mechanic and he likes her car because so far (in the 2+ years she has had it) only regular maintence stuff had to be fixed (brakes, tires, oil changes etc.)

My FH has a 95 Civic (he got in 2000) that has about 120K miles on it, if not more. It's a standard shift, and he was working in Manhatten for the past 6 years (he's now is in West Queens) The car still has the original clutch ! ! Honda's are great cars.

Good luck with your decision ! !

My only recommendation is to think twice about buying a Volkswagen! Mine was a nightmare.
I would look into a Honda/ Acura or Nissan/ Infiniti.

I think it really depends on what you are looking for. When I went car shopping, I wanted impractical. I'm young with no kids so I figured now is the time for impractical. I got an Infiniti G35 coupe and it's awesome. It is a really hot car but seriously, I can barely fit grocery bags in the trunk and it is horrible in the snow. I it though. It's really fun and it suits my needs for now. That is, my need to hang on to my youth! LOL

I also have a Nissan Maxima. It is a great car. Never had any problems at all and I put a lot of mileage on it (it's an '01 with 130K miles). FH had a Nissan Murano, Pathfinder and a Titan and both were awesome. The Titan was a bit of a gas guzzler. Overall, I highly recommend Nissans and Infiniti.
