What kind of car should I get?
Looking for ideas and suggestions here. I have to trade in a 2007 VW Passat 2.0T which turned out to be a lemon. I am getting the full amount I paid for it, but I need to come up with something to replace it with. I need to come up with a list for this person who is essentially in a "personal shopper" type role, he hunts all over a couple states for cars.
I am looking for something similar to my old car. So...
Sedan body style (hatchback will do)
~200hp (fast enough to pull out in dense traffic)
~AWD is a plus, but not required
I personally prefer the finish on Japanese and European cars, but I am opening up to some American cars after this ordeal (currently looking at a ford fusion).
I am also looking for reliability tips. For example I have heard bad things about Audi in the past, or specific cars that have known issues from production.
No idea is a bad idea. Brainstorm.... GO!
