I drive a 2005 2WD Nissan Xterra and I love it and plan to drive it until the wheels come off and won’t go back on, lol. Fiance has a 2006 Nissan Sentra so we usually take his on little trips around town and mine when we go on trips and whatnot. We were just gifted a 2013 Honda Accord which I think we’re going to try and use sparingly to keep the mileage down. Our plan is to get a new SUV (or crossover of some sort) when we have kids…gotta have something safe!
A little 2009 Toyota Yaris 4 door Hatchback – I LOVE it! It’s tiny but so comfortable, amazing on gas, and the hatchback & 4 door configuration make it great for carrying stuff since, let’s be honest, I’m the only person in the car 90% of the time. I added snow tires and a trailer hitch for my bike rack which has turned it into a great little adventure mobile. It actually handles great in the snow – a lot better than my Honda Civic used to.
Plus it’s bright blue. I call it my little jelly bean.
We have a Audi Q5, its a great car but if you’re looking for something good on fuel. This is not it. We mostly do city driving, and share a car so its not an issue for us.. But premium fuel prices are a killer and its a fairly large tank.
I would also suspect it may be too small for your needs. I don’t haul anything and have found myself thinking “This doesn’t fit as much as I thought it would” on a few occasions. They do make a bigger version (Q7) but the whole look is different and it would be even worse on gas, it depends what your deal breakers are in a car.. Perhaps its not fuel economy since you’re used to driving a truck, in that case, Audi’s are great cars. The Audi Care program is excellent.
I have a 2012 Jeep patriot. I wanted a SUV but not a huge gas guzzler and this one is perfect!
I have a 2012 Prius C and I love it!
My hubby and I commute around 100 miles roundtrip to and from work everyday and its usually highway driving. The Prius has become a lifesaver. It’s so awesome on gas and drives very well. It only costs us around $30 dollars to fill it up and we really only need to fill up every 4-5 days. In comparison, we used to have a Honda Accord and that was costing me $60 dollars every 3 days!
I drive a 2012 Ford Escape which is great on gas, great in the snow (I live near the Rockies in Canada) and can fit quite a bit of stuff. If you were getting a car, I’d give the Mazda3’s a shot. My husband and I both had one (I had the hatchback, he had the sedan) and they were amazing in snow (with snowtires on) sporty and fun, great on gas. And I could fit quite a bit with the back seats folded down in the hatchback 🙂
I have a Lexus RX350! I absolutely love it! It gets pretty good gas mileage and the maintenance is low!
NowMrsS: I’m a teacher too! I drive a Ford Edge. I bought it brand new and it is AWESOME! Not bad on gas at all (compared to larger SUV’s/trucks) and so much space! I coach as well and there is tons of space for everything in there. I have no plans at all to get another car, even though I’ve had it now for 6 years!
I have a 1999 BMW 328i (it’s older, but it runs great, I’ve done few repairs and it’s paid for). My SO drives a 2006 Infinit G35 <– I think is the number on the back.
A Honda Pilot Touring. I LOVE it. You can get a used one for a decent price, and they can last forever.
Edit to add: the touring has 4WD, but still gets decent gas mileage and has nice inside features as well.
Thanks for all the car suggestions! This is such a huge help, keem them coming! I have looked into the Ford Edge and the Ford Escape and they look solid, but unfortunately after all the repairs I’ve had to do on the Ford truck, my Darling Husband is kinda done with Ford (he’s a Dodge/Jeep guy). I love Toyota, they’ve always been so reliable! Any Honda CR-V people out there?
VegasRVAbride: Do you like your X-terra? I have always liked them and it’s one of the front runners right now? How rough does it drive?
Loandrob2014: A Jeep Patriot is another top choice? Do you like it? Any major maintenance issues?
I have a 2014 Chevy Equinox LTZ…It’s a great and solid crossover and even though it’s AWD, I find the gas mileage is pretty decent.
My Fiance had a black Polo and I drive a black 50s limiyed edition cabriolet beetle 🙂 we LOVE our beetle! We don’t get much sun in Manchester, UK, but when we do we have the top down loving it 😀
