What car to buy?

I asked this in a group but I thought I would get more responses on answers. I'm moving from NYC to GA and I'm going to need a to buy a car when I get there. I'm pregnant with twins so I'm thinking an SUV but I'm not sure what to get and what is going to have enough room.

  • So, this is excluding Hybrids, which are wonderful, if you can afford the extra money . . .

    For cost-effectiveness and gas mileage in SUV, look at:
    Honda CRV $20,000
    Hyandai Tucson $20,000
    Mitsubishi Outlander $22,000

    If you want a roomy compact car that is affordable and has great mileage:
    2011 Nissan Sentra (It has a wider wheel base in 2011, and is quite nice) $15,000

    If you want some pointers on how to get close to invoice when you buy, please PM me . . . . I recently purchased two vehicles and was able to negotiate close to invoice for them . . I can give you some pointers on how to approach the dealers, :)

  • I wanted an SUV when I was car shopping and ended up buying a minivan...I love it amazingly. I swore I would never own one but it is great, very spacious, has a DVD player for the kids, easy to get the kids in and out of and the dogs too. It is a Honda Odyssey. Good luck on your quest, I've always hated the car shopping thing...decisions, decisions :)

  • I am a Jeep Girl, had a 2006 black and if I could afford a 2011 I would sure get it!
