    Default Getting a new auto

    My wife’s car is on its way out. I don’t want her driving it anymore. I have a nice Lincoln MKZ which I love but she is going to take it over. I need to get some kind of SUV the winters around here are brutal. I’d really like and MKT I just really like Lincoln’s but I’m not going to drop a shit load of money on a car that people will fuck up in parking lots etc. I’m also not going to buy brand new, I had one once and someone plowed into me totaling it. Any u guys pick up any solid SUV. I really like the look of the Nissan Murano but I’m reading they are very reliable. I imagine a lot of u in England don’t get American cars but just wondering

    I got a new Honda Ridgeline...Japanese brand, but 70% of materials for the vehicle come from the US & Canada and it was built in Alabama. A truck when I need it to be and a SUV when I need it to be that.

    The Jeep Grand Cherokee is a very good SUV, handles everything and we get some winters here. I saw a new Ridgeline yesterday and that is a sharp looking truck.

    I have electrical issues and I know other people that do though, to be fair, they are older vehicles. Mechanically I have been very happy with it. The only issue I have had was due to negligence on my part. No blindspots, but I rarely watch where I'm going anyway- not much point since I'm blind as a bat.

    considering that I have worked in motor insurance for the last 15 years, I don't know how to drive, I would struggle to tell you the difference between a Skoda and a helicopter, the last time I got behind the wheel of a car was when I was about 14 and went on the bumper cars at the local fair (if I remember correctly I was drunk on vodka)

    On a daily basis I tell people they are at fault for accidents when I don't have a fucking clue what I am talking about...

    If I was you I would buy the most expensive one...and if you are in an accident and it isn't blatantly obvious who is at fault I would say it is a 50/50 split.

    and for the record I was a demon on the bumper cars back in them days, they were called dodgems for a reason, you dodge em, them you line yourself up and smash into them with all your bodyweight, good fun the dodgems were, I reckon I gave a fair few people whiplash back in the day

    Small? Mid? or Large? That's the first decision you need to make.

    As far as brands, Toyota's never break down.

    So if you're looking for reliability in a mid-size SUV, a 6-cylinder Toyota Highlander might fit your needs.

    Ya I’d be happy with small to mid. I really hate buying cars. I plan on getting used with 20k to 30k miles. I just don’t like how new ones lose value when you drive them off the list. Used does have risk though u just never know.

    My sister bought a Highlander earlier this year and she really likes it.

    Dude I hate to admit it but I can’t figure out how to put pics up with my iPhone. Most sights you can just copy and paste and the pic pops up. You guys still use 1970’s tech and refuse to update. That highlander does look nice though

    That is a fat motor, which means it is good.
