  • It depends on your driving style (highway/city), family size, budget and personal preference.... I love my honda pilot - but now the kids are older, I wish I had the navigation system rather than the dvd....

  • That is up to you. I would make sure to test drive alot of cars and make sure to sleep on it before you buy. I work at a dealership and all too often people get caught up in "I like this" and regret their decision. Take your time and be very careful and logical. There can be problems with any car. If you find one you really like- (new or used) talk to a mechanic ( not a salesman, manager or service writer) and get his opinion on the vehicle you want. If it is a used vehicle get a mechanic you can trust to check it over thouroughly 1st before buying. Some are easier to work on and cheaper to maintain. Get all of the information and don't impulse buy on this one.

  • well the focus is a good car (ford)..

    as long as it's after 00'. for a small car it is a VERY safe car and saved my life and DD's life (was 8 months pregnant with her) when a drunk driver decided to blow through a stop sign. Held up very well for a front end crash doing about 50 mph.
    In a neon, saturn, honda, or like cars, I'd be dead.
