So, recommending gasoline powered alternates probably won't be of much help.
So, what is the mileage for each of these candidates, and what are your needs? They look like MPVs and wagons or at least hatches. And they seem pretty damned expensive. Why no Toyota?
Of the list, it would be the VW or the Alfa for me. Jim
Got a Toyota right now. I would never ever buy another. It's horrid. I wake every morning and pray somebody has stolen it.
The Alfa seems to be getting popular now.
There is no importance to whether the car is practical, depreciates or rusts. I just have to like it and get good mileage.
I need to re-arrange the order. In my current mood it goes like this;
4. B Class
One thing I will say is that since I've been thinking about this, (about 8 months). The 159 is the only one that has consistently stayed in my top three.
