But for the moment I am gravitating to the frugal choice of keeping my 27,000 mile 2009 Vibe. There was a possibility that I would give the Vibe to my son but I got him a 2000 Odyssey.
I've had a mazda 3 sedan rental and it did feel roomier inside than my vibe. I don't mind the car being small tho, it's so much easier to park
My previous car, 2002 maxima, even after 3 years of ownership I can't tell where the back end is when parking lol I've looked at the CX5 too but kind of want a sedan this time around. Looked at the new mazda 6 too and it's pretty fun to drive. I'm just glad all these cars are stepping away from the all plastic interiors now, my car's interior feels so cheap
