Me:

What kind of vehicle do you have? 2009 Ford Fusion
Do you like it? love it!
Has it been reliable? very
Anything you don't like about it? if we have more than 5 people, we need 2 vehicles.
Any major issues? no
What is your mpg? 27 city, 33 highway

If you could buy any car, what would you buy? this is the car i bought in november. before that i had a fancy 2004 expedition. i loved that but it was a gas piggy and it cost a LOT of money to fix.

What kind of vehicle do you have? 2012 Ford Fiesta
Do you like it? he loves it
Has it been reliable? yes, but it's brand new
Anything you don't like about it? i don't like the head rests. he likes everything.
Any major issues? not yet
What is your mpg? he regularly gets 39 highway. he's hoping to hit 42 soon.

If you could buy any car, what would you buy? this is what he bought. he wanted something new with good gas mileage and gave up fancy features to have it so new. before that he had a ford escape. we loved that too, but it was become too costly to fix.

in the past 3 years we have also owned a Lumina (nice but a AWFUL to work on), a Magnum (HATED that thing and ditched it after a year), a neon (loved it and was sad to see it go) and a F250 (we're keeping it forever because it's DH's baby)

with the 2 cars we bought at the end of last year, (fusion and fiesta) that is it for us. i'm not changing cars again for 7+ years. that is why we bought slightly newer vehicles. i got sick of all the spontaneous time and money to fix problems on the older ones.
