Picking out a new car

We are starting the process of selecting a new car, even though our insurance company adjuster has yet to even look at our car due to the fact it’s so far in the middle of nowhere, my fingers are crossed that we’ll have some resolution by the end of tomorrow. Today would be nice though, today would be super nice. Along with price and size, we are looking very closely at safety features this time around with car shopping.

What are you looking for in a new car?


  1. Well, we just bought one a year ago. I have no car desires. If it runs, has A/c and a reliable radio and I can plug my iPod into it, I’m pretty much happy with anything…but I have to admit I LOVE our little Honda Civic!


  2. When I bought it two years ago, I wanted something affordable enough to pay off quickly, had good gas mileage, and was cute. I also required heated, leather seats and a sunroof. I also require it be made by a company whose headquarters are in the US.


  3. The last new car we bought (and I hope the last one) was a 2006 model. I was looking for an “old lady car” that “fit” me – a four-door midsized sedan. The one I wound up with is a Nissan Altima, and I would buy the same thing again if I needed to.


  4. I’ll never own a car again — it just isn’t in the cards (or in the accounts). But if I had to choose one, it would be a Honda Civic. I drove the first one for twenty years. When I was able to drive again, I had a 1998 Honda Civic, which was running fine until the tidal surge that was Irene.


  5. Our little car has everything we need plus Onstar. I just want to be comfy. We have our music and AC. We have plenty of room as long as we don’t need to put a wheelchair or a fridge in the car.
