Hiya

Hi All,

Stumbled across this forum while researching fuel efficient used cars. Figure I'd stick around, try and learn something about efficient driving methods and maybe try my hand at a few aeromods.

Currently driving an inherited Buick Rendezvous (or The Moneysucker as I call it) and looking to upgrade to something smaller than an elephant.

I apologize in advance for asking questions that have been asked a thousand times before.

Welcome to the forum.

Inheritances are nice, but yikes. What are you considering as a replacement for the Buick?

Thanks for the welcome.

The only thing the Buick seems to do well is cost money. Both in fuel and repairs.

Working on a list of cars to look at. Looking for something that gets at least 30 mpg, can carry stuff (My dog's a mastiff mix, so it needs a roomy back seat ), and is in the ballpark of $5k Canadian.

I like the idea of a tdi; though a number of people have warned me off VW.
