What kind of car should I buy

Posted by on Jan. 15, 2012 at 5:14 AM

I want a car that has enough room for my son. Not including I have five cousins that I give rides places some times. I also work from home and have to take things to people so I need a car that is great for a work at home mom. I have to buy it used so I'm looking for other moms who have had the car and liked it.

Sincerely

How do you feel about minivans? Small SUV'S are nice and get good gas mileage these days.

we only have a small car, but it sounds like a mini van might be your best bet.

Minivans are rough on the engin. The engins are small, small tires, and it's tring to support a huge body. A Chevy Impala would be nice. They seat 5, and have room, and the trunk. You can fit 3 carseats easily in the back. They are also great on gas!

if you look into a chevy impala, make sure it has good gas mileage. my boyfriend has a 2001 and loves to suck gas. but the car is great. I love it beside gas. but can't complain if its local stuff.

I have never heard of an Impala getting bad gas miles. What kind is his?

Me neither! He could have a sensor off. I have a 2008, but a little while ago I took it in because it was just sucking the heck out of gas!!! Which was not right! I had something off, some sensor, in the engine or something. It's fixed now and sooooo much better!! Right where it should be with gas :)
