Jake Wants to Buy A New Car – Any Suggestions
I am getting ready to retire the silver bullet very soon. My 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix has about 160,000 miles on it.
I drive 35,ooo to 40,000 miles a year. I just don’t know what to buy. I need something big enough for me and the kids so 4 doors is a must. I am also 6′ 6″ tall which rules out about 80% percent of the car market for me. I need something that gets at least 25 miles per gallon, and is reliable that I should be able to count on getting 150,000 to 200,000 miles out without a lot of breakdown. My budget is $23,000 maximum. Taking all of this into account, what would you suggest I get? I know we have some smart listeners that know their cars out there so help me out. All suggestions are welcome. I’ll let you know what I end up getting. I’m just stumped because I love Pontiacs and they don’t make them anymore.
