it'd be easy to stay off the collector streets, since we basically just have one.
Hmm, UP- US41 or US 2 ???

More like "Main".
And yeah, Fezo, we do a lot of local errands and post office runs with her during the winter with the Subaru too. (Good to see you posting more again!).

Mom likes really tiny cars and currently owns a 2006 Chevrolet Aveo. A new Chevrolet Sonic would probably be the best choice for her.

She just turned 91 and no longer drives, which her neighbors are very thankful for. My Mom never enjoyed driving, so my Dad was at the wheel 100% of the time on all of their trips. However, she certainly enjoys telling you how to drive!
Mom: You're going too fast/slow. Watch out for that guy in front of us! He looks like he's drunk. There's a stop sign/light ahead. You'd better turn on the lights/wipers.
Me: Okay, Mom, why don't you drive now.
Mom: No thanks, you're doing fine, but don't stomp on the brakes so hard.
BUT, if I was getting her a new vehicle, it would have to be a something everyone in the family would enjoy driving!

Depends on the size of the family. For mom, dad & 2 kids, a Prius would be good because it has a big backseat and more cargo space then an accord or camry. With 3 or more kids, I'd get an Odyssey or Sienna.
