I am not sure Accord and Camry are "head and sholders" above Altima. Although youadded "IMO" ...
I have currently Civic 2007 and Altima 1997, and I tell you the Altima was and is a bulletproof car for me.
I love the new Civic 2007, too. It is fast, quite and very economical in terms of gas mileage.
I expect the Civic to be very reliable as well.
I've driven Camry and Accord. They are nice cars, too. But head and sholders above ... hm ...
I am eyeing the Altima and won't be long before I get to the dealer for a spin.
I already tried the new Camry, it is not bad but I have the feeling that it lacks something. And I do not know what, yet.
Also, the newest Jeta 2.5 L is good and loaded with features, but reliability is an issue there.

#1585 of 3286 towing with a smaller car
Jul 31, 2007 (10:29 am)
I currently have a 2001 dodge durango with the 5.9 motor. I use it mainly for daily driving and towing my dirt bikes to the track or trails. I may be switching jobs soon and will be commuting about 3 times farther than I am right now. Right now I average about 14mpg.
I will more than likely be trading the Durango in for something more economical due to gas prices and the longer commute. The problem is I still want to be able to haul 2 adult dirt bikes and occasionally my daughters little 50cc dirt bike.
Over all I dont think I will be pulling more than 1200lbs once a month on average. Any suggestions as to which car might best suit my needs.
Here is kind of what I'm looking for:
Front-wheel Drive or all wheel drive
Around $12K used with under 40k miles
Manual trans. preffered but automatic is ok
maybe something kinda sporty
#1586 of 3286 Color for BMW 328i coupe

I realize this may be very subjective, but I am trying to decide between the Space Gray metallic and the Sparkling Graphite Metallic with the saddle brown/black dakota leather interior. Any preferences. I haven't seen many of the space gray. I currently have the Sparkling Graphite on my 330i. Thanks.

Gee... I was going to tell you that Sparkling Graphite sounds better than it looks, but if you already have one, maybe I won't..
I vote for Space Gray.. not a lot of them, and it's a nice color.. Sparkling Graphite really changes depending on the light, and not always in a good way... IMHO

Part of your problem is that it will be difficult but not impossible to find something for around 12 K and less than 40,000 miles. How reliable was your Durango? My biggest fear with American is that reliability is suspect. I guess the vehicles I can suggest, would be a Toyota RAV 4 or a Honda CR-V. My best advice forget about sporty, if you can hold on to the Dodge for a little bit longer it might be worth it. Your other option is to find a sedan, maybe a Subaru, wagon, and equip it with a trailer hitch. Hope I was some help.
i don't think this will satisfy your taste but it is an attempt.
#1589 of 3286 PLYMOUTH BREEZE OR SATURN SL2?

HELP ME CHOOSE! WHICH ONE TO BUY? BOTH ARE 2000, WITH 70K MILES. WHICH IS A BETTER CAR?

I wouldn't buy a Plymouth with even YOUR money.

Avoid the Chrysler product, especially from that time-frame (late 90s-early 00s).
I'd go with the Saturn (although neither of these would be on my list, the Saturn would be the lesser of two evils in my eyes).
