In my last post, I mentioned I've been test driving some vehicles...so I'll share more on that today!
At first, we were looking at used vehicles but with the way financing and rates and warranty are, it almost seems best to get brand new.
What's your opinion?
So far, I've mainly been testing out SUV's. I like being higher off the ground, I like the spaciousness, and I like the option to have AWD or 4WD.
They're all fairly comparable...but I will share a few things about them and what I've driven so far.
Tucson: I liked how it was a nice compact SUV...but it felt very gutless.
Santa Fe: Very nice, was revamped and is now comparable to luxury vehicles. Bad blind spots. But powerful.
Journey: Horrible...'nuff said.
CR-V: Quite nice with some cool features. Very safe...one of the highest safety ratings.
CX5: Zoom zoom! Felt speedy. Very light. Has sensors on the mirror if someone is beside you. One of the only one's made in Japan.
Escape: Wasn't a fan of the interior. Quite expensive for features that come standard in the others.
Trax: Nice and small. Gutless.
Equinox: Powerful because there's a V6 option... but a little big.
Matrix: Larger car. Was fun and compact but still prefer the space of an SUV. But little to no blind spots.
Rav 4: Not as bad blind spots as other SUVs. Nice interior. Fun ride.
Rogue: Very similar to the Mazda...exterior and ride wise. Doesn't have the sensor on the mirrors like the Mazda...but has slightly bigger mirrors for more visibility.
One bad thing about these, is most of them are pretty bad for visibility...but you (or I, rather) would just have to rely on mirrors more.
And I am still wanting to test out a couple Subaru's.
Have you heard anything about these?
Any opinions/experiences would be appreciated :)
Love you too.
