I need to find a new(er) car. I live in Northeast Ohio, with lots of winter weather. I travel 55 miles round trip each day and need something that travels well in (very) inclement weather. My husband wants a truck. Truth is, if it works I do not care, but I would prefer a closed in vehicle (car, station wagon, crossover SUV).

What is the best way to get the price down and negotiate a lease on the 2008 model? Also, a hybrid 4 yr lease vs regular RX SUV, which is better deal (with cost of gas rising)? Read Answers

Hi! I'm buying my first car and I'm on a rather tight budget. I've narrowed it down to 2 cars but I'm not sure which to get. All things being roughly equal in terms of overall condition and price, which is a better car - a 91 Toyota Celica with 125k miles or a 94 Geo Prizm with 103k miles? I'm looking for a car that will last while without having to sink a lot of money into maintaining it. Thanks! Jame Read Answers
