Alright, Dogblr and friends, talk cars with me for a bit.
I’m gonna be in the market for a new car. I’d like something that I could crate two dogs (50lb Baylee and possibly of similar size Future Puppy) in with room to spare and something with good gas mileage bc I commute (74 miles/100 minute drive - roundtrip) to Uni at least twice a week from August until May. I might be going the gently used route, but new is also a possibility bc I need to find a dealer/car combo with a good warranty in case of faulty parts or something.
I’ve been looking at the Kia Soul and the Hyundai Santa Fe (leaning towards the prior). Both seem like strong contenders atm. (Bonus: my boyfriend’s mom works at the Kia dealer and might be able to hook me up with something)
But are there any reasonably priced small-medium sized SUVs I should also consider? Any and all suggestions are welcome!
(Note: I really hate my current ‘04 Chevy Impala sedan….so pls no Chevys…nothing but issues with my old POS. Gonna try my hardest to avoid another sedan too, but feel free to suggest anyway.)
