Looking to replace my 2002 Jeep Liberty. Need ideas for new or slightly used cars to look at. I am 58 yrs old, live in chicago suburbs where parking is tight but travel many weekends 380 miles to house in Michigan. trips around town generally 1-5 miles. Work, store etc. Need 1) safe transportation 2) like to be seated high up. 3) good visability and pick up . 4)would like a bit mort comfort than Jeep sport 5) money not a huge issue as I only buy a car every 10 plus years, but would like to be Eco friendly if possible. Would like to spend 35 to 40 thousand. PS I so not have a garage, and do not enjoy washing car etc so beauty is not really an issue. Thanks. Linda

Julie Kimes, General Sales Manager at O'Daniel Automart / O'Daniel Mazda Linda, I can see having so many selections out there can be a little overwhelming. I recently had to replace my husband Jeep and my daughter also needed a vehicle. I work at a dealership that carries Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Chrysler, Audi, Porsche, Ford and Mitsubishi and Mazda. For us it was an easy choice we ended up with two new Mazda�s. The new CX5 sounds like a perfect fit for all of your needs. There are several great sites to help narrow down your shopping list. (Edmonds, kbb just to name of few) Because you keep a vehicle for 10 years I would also suggest driving overnight, or even renting your top choices for a day just to make sure you are completely satisfied with the vehicle.
