Help me buy my next car

The other car thread got me thinking that maybe I should ask you guys what kind of car I should buy.

Here is what you need to know.

1. I have a wife, son, and 105 lb dog (GSD).
2. I live in Iowa, so I don't want anything that would suck in bad weather.
3. My wife drives a Subaru Outback. I love it. Awesome car in shitty weather, and since its AWD, there is no guess work when to use 4WD. We have a divered so the dog stays out of the front.
4. We don't really travel with the dog, but we take her down the road to hang out with my father-in-laws GSD every day, so she's in the car twice a day.

What I'm looking for.

1. I want a vehicle with some size. If we were going to load up and go on a trip, I want a vehicle that has some cargo space.

2. Need decent gas mileage, but realize what I'll get with AWD of 4WD

3. If its over 6000, I would qualify for a business tax deduction.

4. I entertain clients, so needs to be nice.

Vehicles I've thought about.

1. New Ford F150, Chevy, GMC, Ram. - Crew Cab short box throw a topper on it for the dog. Like the idea of keeping the cabin clean.

2. I can't believe what the new Tahoes and Surburbans go for.

3. Larger mid-size SUVs, GMC Arcadia, Ford Explorer, really any mid-size SUV, would do.

4. Somedays I'm like fu@k it, and just get another Outback, but I know I'll miss the size.

2.7 ecoboost gets 23 while making over 300 and towing 8500 pounds (80% of all truck owners tow this or less)

Silverados are a close second to the F-150 and as always have the ultra-reliable LS/LQ motors which you already know my affinity for~

Pretty easy to know who's serious and if they aren't then just don't give them your info.


And he's here anyway...might as well maybe make it worth something.

I would say go for the f150 and call home team.

My brother in law just got one and the thing looks nice and the eco boost has a lot of pop. Then you can take the shell off as needed.

Call hometeam IMO

I dont believe I have ever actually sold a vehicle via CP, though I dont look at time spent on CP as time 'selling', i just am putting my 2 cents in on car posts a lot~

I have had several people who in good faith tried to by something from me but for one reason or another we didnt make a deal, but mostly its free advice, free carfaxes, and some looky-looing.

LOL but I dont care about all that, im just opinionated and forum addicted TBH and not really worried about ACTUALLY selling something, though its built into my psyche when it comes to talking about car purchasing~

He didnt start in the car business until recently, worked at a competitor that I previously worked at, and is now at a different Machens store.

Yeah. That's what I thought. Sales guys get used for information all the time. As if we're supposed to provide knowledge for free. No one else on Earth is expected to do that, and it's okay. We make incredible incomes doing what we do, it's just something I figured would be predictable being here as long as I have, and I'm not remotely shocked that I was more than right in my assessment. Psychological salesmanship.

one of my better friends/neighbor is a Chevy dealer so I do ok. But I really think you actually care about getting people in the right car at the right price.

I beat your drum every time this comes up.

People are missing out imo.

Until recently they still used partially boxed frames, which hurt them all around they have lower tow capacity, less room, less power, and they are just not as rugged. They dont look (subjective) nor ride as good, and they dont work as well. They just dont do anything outstanding and full size trucks is the most competitive super segment in the industry.

They DO hold there value insanely well, even better than other trucks, because the truck buyers they appeal to are generally lighter duty, they dont do massive rebates like the other manufacturers.
