I need a car: should I get a used 2005 hybrid Honda Accord V6 for $19K or a new Suburu Legacy AWD V6 $28 or used or new Infiniti G35 ($23 for used; $35 for new). The car is primarily for me, sometimes a friend or teenager; I want it to be cute and sexy (I am finally OUT of the soccer mom look); totally safe; good fuel mileage; peppy to pass trucks on the highway; and AWD or something safe for the ice and snow of a New England winter (about 3 months). Or is there another car you would recommend? thanks!

Marnie Kramer, Owner and Creator at EverythingCarz.com Dear Barbara, Thank you for visiting AskPatty.com. Are three choices are good ones, now you just need to narrow down which meet your needs the best. As for gas mileage, the Hybrid do the best when driven at the suggested speeds. If you are doing more highway mileage and you tend to driver faster than those recommended Honda speeds, the efficiency of those vehicle decrease quickly, so just keep that in mind. Following is a link to a site that provides you to do a comparison to comparison on the vehicles. http://www.askpatty.com/chrome.php Since Safety ratings are important I have also included some links to that data. http://www.internetautoguide.com/crash-tests/09-int/2005/honda/accord/index.html http://autos.aol.com/cars-Infiniti-G35-2008/safety-ratings http://autos.aol.com/cars-Subaru-Legacy-2009/safety-ratings Good Luck on your search.
