    2013 Chevrolet Volt - Base

    The overall quality of the Volt is well above average for a Chevrolet car of any kind. The drive is very smooth, a little eerie how quite it is, acceleration is good and the brakes are strong. Body roll is low and handling is overall impressive considering the hard compound tires and eco nature of the car. It is nice having the 2 screens with more information than you could want. With the tax incentives factored in the car is a great price. I have only put gas in it 3 times in 8 months!

    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.

    2011 BMW X3 - xDrive28i

    Misses out not having lumbar seat and automatic garage door opener. Other than that great pick-up and excellent highway handle. True to its claims of 25+ highway mileage.

    2010 Toyota Prius - IV

    The Prius has generally exceeded my expectations from the MPG perspective. During the summer I tend to see averages around 52-53 and during the winter 45. Overall the car is comfortable and is holding together very well. The best part is the fill-up. Even at the higher gas prices I rarely put in more that $40.

    2011 BMW 335 - is RWD Convertible

    It's a hard top convertible. with the M-Sport pkg. In the iS it has a performance oriented firm ride, which makes for sometimes a jarring ride. (south-eastern PA roads) RFT tires don't add any suppleness to the suspension either. BUT, this is the most fun to drive, best looking (inside or out), best performing vehicle I have ever owned. Ultimate Driving Machine? You Bet! Oh, by the way, it has averaged 22.5 MPG in 20,000 miles of mainly suburban driving. The N-54 engine is sweet & powerful.
