Help finding my son a new car

My sons 2000 Ford Explorer front wheel completely froze up and destroyed the brakes and there is a problem with the rear axle too. Repair cost is over $1000 and I'm not paying that. Time to look at a new car for him.

Who were the resident dealers on this site again?

Here are the cars he is looking at. Any opinions would be great as I have had it with car shopping these last few years.

If you can find an S10 or Sonoma those trucks run forever..a Chevy Tracker..just about any Toyota Corolla or Camery..Ford Rangers aren't bad buy they can be hit or miss as far as a good one..a Ford ****us is a good one
Oh, I plan to talk him into something less expensive. Especially since it will be parked outside 24/7. Trucks are out of the question though. He isn't interested.

He found this. I talked him out of it.

The insurance on that would be high and the MPG sucks.

That is a good plan in my opinion..ok so no trucks..that is cool..just not used to teenage boys not wanting a pickup is the only reason I said anything..what is he looking for in the car

Good gas mileage
Around $10000 or under
Low miles as possible

Does he want automatic or manual
Any certain color
Any certain car that he really likes
2 door or 4 (4 door insurance is cheaper if I remember right)
Has he looked into hatchback cars any

Lot's of bad advice in this thread. Have any of the CP mechanics weighed in.

On that list I would go with the Ford or Nissan. VW is known for needing constant repairs. I don't know about the new models but I have a couple of work friends who have 08 Focuses and they have been very solid cars. Also, they are great on gas mileage.

I don't know what a 2001 Jaguar normally would go for, but I'm guessing that's a scam. That car is probably worth a lot more than $4500 because it only has 68000 miles.

SUVs
Toyota Highlander Hybrid (2008-09), Honda Pilot (2009-10)


If you want a midsized, three-row SUV with the best fuel economy possible, look no further than the Highlander Hybrid. At 24 mpg overall, it matches the fuel economy of many smaller SUVs and even some midsized sedans. It has a sumptuous interior and a smooth ride. The Pilot delivers sharper handling, and its comfortable third row brings the seating to eight.


ummm just no..I've got an 08 Highlander hybrid and it gets about 14-15 mpg. I hate it that they advertise those mpg's and it never acheives it. Also I own a Prius and it gets 30-40 mpg. Close to 30 in the winter and close to 40 in the summer. I have never had above 40 mpg on a tank of gas, not once even brand new.
