Can't go wrong with an Outback.

SUV but I was in a Kia SUV Rental and it impressed me quite a bit. I've read that they decided to upgrade quality in the new models and this thing was quiet as crap on the highway and had all the features you listed. Definitely changed my mind about Kia.

IKNOWRITE!

I am seriously considering an Optima SXL, for example.  That K900 is badass but only RWD AND KANSAS WINTERS OMG!

I am in old man land now on cars.  I want the options that I want, a very comfy and quiet ride, reliable,  and I no longer give two fucks about “brand” from a coolness perspective.
Hyundai Genesis 80 with AWD like this one is hard to beat - even better if you can find a private sale as they have 4/50k full warranty and 10/100k powertrain standardhttps://www.carmax.com/car/17262951

Yep, the Genesis (prolly a 2015 or 2016) is the leader in the clubhouse for me.  They have more options than you can shake a stick at.

I'm about to hit 225k on my Corolla.  After changing 2 ignition coils and the alternator I think I'll hit 300k. The hardest part might be paying to put new tires on a car with over 250k.

Need to buy a new-to-her sedan for @MrsWondermeal. She wants a hybrid (~40+ mpg), only drives in the city to and from work. Will probably go with a Fusion Hybrid from a rental car sales place because we can buy it online and be done with it. Have done this before and had no issues.

We both feel very Pete-ish about cars, and will take any other recommendos.

If you buy a former rental be aware that it has been driven and treated like a rental

My second car was a former rental convertible mustang  :drool:

I test drove a 16 fusion and it's a very fun car but ultimately too cramped for me. Then I went to the 16 taurus and liked it a lot. Extremely comfortable and great ride (one of the best Uber cars from a passenger standpoint too). Was trying to downsize and ended up getting an explorer anyway, but would definitely reco either of those.

the idea that former rental cars are more risky than non-rentals is a myth.  these are cars that are maintained more regularly than non-rentals and the large majority of people aren't taking them off-road and doing flips and stuff.


if i was looking to move cargo, i would look at the audi all road
i know, a station wagon clams?!!  but they're pretty dope, so anyway

My Camry hit 225k last month and the rear struts are pretty much shot.  Any chance I'm replacing those now?  Hell naw.  I did put new tires and an alternator in it last year tho, that's probably all the care it's going to get other than oil changes.

rental cars are generally gross and there's a reason they get rid of them after 1 year and 40k miles or whatever, but by all means go be richard gere in pretty woman

Now I get it.  I thought you were saying the crosstrek was your “something bigger” but turned out to be not big enough (hence my WTF?), not that she vetoed something bigger and got the crosstrek instead.

$7k for a new transmission seems like a crap shoot. So I’m in the market now for a new whip.

There’s not many people that can organically get a nickname that truly sticks and defines who they are.  You sure do fit into that category tho Chodecat
