    2012 Mazda CX-9 - Grand Touring FWD

    Fast, handles great, tons of room, comfy seats, interior design and quality gives it a very upscale/luxury feel, Bose Surround Sound Audio sounds amazing. Fuel economy is average at best, gated shifter is annoying, rearview camera isn't very useful for backing up. Overall- it's an amazing vehicle and an exceptional value!

    2014 Ford Escape - SE FWD

    I have a '14 Escape SE. It has a 1.6 turbo engine. It gets 27 mpg town 32 highway. It has all the options I want. I really like the car but there is one glitch that Ford refuses to correct. A Ford Rep. even told me, "nothing is perfect, deal with it". I have written Ford, even to their president and got no response. The problem is the non dimming dash lights at night. It is suppose to be automatic but it must be manually dimmed every time the car is started at night. How silly is this?

    2000 Ford F-150 - XLT 4x2 Super Cab Flareside Flareside

    I loved everything about this truck till one day out of the clear blue, it blew a spark plug, I maintained this truck very good and kept up with regular oil changes and maintenance. fixed blown spark plug now it has a loud chatter and all this for no reason. And the worst of it is that the manufacture knows about this issue but will not recall or repair it for free. be aware that your spark plugs can blow out especially if the dealer or repair shop replaces your spark plugs, and are not careful

    2009 Ford Focus - SE (500A) Sedan

    This is the only car that I have ever owned that had no warranty problems. I made a trip to the dealership for an oil change and the 60,000 mile service. I did hit a deep pot hole once. the tire and a $12 suspension part had to be replaced. Also, my local tire store removed a few nails.

    2014 Mitsubishi Mirage - ES

    I love this car, its so easy to drive and super comfortable and it is great value for the money. i hope auto makers keep making small affordable cars even though they are not the most profitable for them. i love the 3-cylinder CVT combo in this car it is very smooth and has enough power to move itself around quickly but i would go with the 5 speed if you can . i also love how i always get better mpg than the sticker this thing is Extremely affordable.
