JoeZ (5/13/2008)Jeep Grand Cherokee gets about 20 avg. and I think they're giving you gas at $2.99 a gallon for the first 12,000 of the first three years you own it.

Good room in them and they ride well.

I've had two, 293,000 on the first one and someone else is still driving it and I'm at 180,??? on this one and love it.
Yes....Chrysler has announced a month long promotion on new vehicles and gas for 3 years @ $2.99:bowdown

Here is a link to the story http://www.usatoday.com/money/autos/2008-05-05-chrysler-gas_N.htm[/quote]



Gee I wonder why they are giving gas away for 2.99. Because the product that they sell is subpar and sales are just about dead for them.

Check out the chevy HHR. I bought one a year and a half ago and I'm sold on it. 30 MPG, plenty of room, and dependable. I have over 52000 miles on mine without any problems. AND IT'S A CHEVY! I gave 15 grand for it brand new.:usaflag

With more than 2 kids the minivan is the way to go, but, the gas mileage is not going to be great. Most of the minivans get only slightly better mpg than the v6 suv's, however you do get much more useable space for the same mpg. The Honda and Toyota mini's are certainly at the top of the heap as far as choices go, but, because of that you will pay more for them.

If you have only one or two kids, then you can get by comfortably with a car with a good trunk and back seat. The rear facing car seats take up more room than the forward facing, and you only use those for about the first year. A couple of cars with lots of room are:<UL><LI>The Ford Taurus/Mercury Sable, they have the largest trunk on the road, get good mpg, and have the highest safety rating you can get. Used ones are cheap.</LI><LI>The Mazda 6, five door, sounds kinda crazy, but the Mazda 6 has quite a bit of room, with the 5door/hatchback you get a car that still looks good and hasa ton of room.</LI><LI>The Chevy HHR, has lots of room but I can't tell you much beyond that.</LI><LI>Volvo V-70, one of the safest cars built, gets up to 30mpg and rides great, has plenty of storage. Also the BEST auto seats you will ever sit in.</LI><LI>The Altima is just a good all around value, always has been, not as much room as some of the others though.</LI>[/list]
I have worked in the car biz for 7yrs, and I have 3 kids that were all in car seats at the same time. Good luck!

HONDA ELEMENT...........Not a minivan so you can keep your "Man card" and has more room than you'll need with good MPG. At least look at one before you set your mind on something else. They come with plastic floor mats for super easy cleanup and the huge backseat srea is ideal. There are all kinds of nifty add ons for them that may suit what you need. Check them out you'll be glad you did.

BUY AMERICAN!

There are many appropriate vehicles that are made in AMERICA.

Our current economic problems are in part due to people buying Jap, (Remember Pearl Harbor) and Nazi cars, (Remember the Holocaust).

The job you save may be your own.

And I am here to tell you that a Toyota is more made in America than Ford or Dodge. There is no such thing as made in America anymore.

Too bad the US automakers are assembling their cars across in Mexicoand abroad more and more while the foreign automakers continue to build more plants in the US and provide more jobs in the US.

My Tundra was Assembled right here in the good ole USA in Texas.
