Now it's time to do some car shopping. I'm not very interested in vanity or speed (thought I wouldn't necessarily turn either down). I'll give you the parameters: I don't really want a truck or an SUV. I would like to keep 5 seat belts. It should have 4 doors due to children getting in and out. I lean toward Japanese cars (I know.. I know... being from Michigan, I should support Detroit - but whatever - they made too much crap for too long for me to trust them) but would also consider a VW or even another Volvo. My budget is around 15k, but I would love to find the perfect beast for 6k. I live in Denver, so I get to ride my bike to work a lot, but in the winter, and when the calendar fills up, I still need a car.
What say you my fellow Hubskiers? What kind of car do you have? What kind do you want? Why?
I have some ideas about what I'm looking for, but I'm hoping that something you suggest will spark something I hadn't previously thought of.
