We just had a Mitsubishi Galant as a rental car, and it was very comfortable. And they have 0% financing for 60 months right now.

From AOL Autos :
“Sometimes the junk in your trunk is actually going to be on the driver’s seat. Cars like the Nissan Altima and Pontiac Grand Prix win praise for having wide, comfortable seats. The Dodge Nitro and (surprisingly) the small Saturn Sky get high marks from reviewers for seats that are soft enough to cushion most bumps. If you’re too small to fill a seat up, look for a car with side bolsters like the Mazda Speed3—they’ll hold you in place.”

There is a lot more to getting the right car than comfortable seats. New or used? Price range? Style? Mileage desired? You won’t be loving even the most comfortable seats too much if you get a piece of junk that breaks down every week.

There are lots of good financing deals to be had. What can you afford? What are you driving now?

So true. Currently driving a honda civic-2006. It should be a pretty good trade-in. I am not going to get a loan, unless it’s really really low. I was thinking in terms of a car around $20k and lower. A good quality used car—low miles makes sense, or new if I can do it.

Do you not want another Honda?

I have nothing against Hondas—this has been a great, dependable car—just too small for me.
