Funny how generations have different impressions. My 2012 Cruze Eco is the first Chevy I've owned and it's a fantastic commuter car. I, on the other hand, will NEVER forgive Hyundai for the 1988 (non)Exel.
So true. I'm old, And I have had so many different vehicles. What i have learned is. I want one that MOVES when I stick my foot in it. So the little hybrids are out for me. I had a 4 banger, actually 2. Never again. The little V6 Escape wil jump out from under you, and get pretty much the same MPG as the 4 Cly model.
Something else I have finally been forced to realize. I CAN'T bend the right way to get in, and out of a car any more. I have to have a SUV, or truck, or I can't go. Went with friend in their new Malibu the other night. I like to never got out of that thing. My son has a Thunderbird. Wanted me to drive it. Yeah right. Had to crawl in, and roll out.
Something else about SUVs, and trucks. DW gets car sick. She does a lot better in a truck.
And again. It's better on your TV to tow with OD off. For many reasons
