Wheels.26

Buying new car

--------

Jil, if you are still reading here:  which would you buy, Volvo XC40
or Infiniti Q30 or Q50?

Or stepping down a bit, Mazda CX5 vs Honda C-RV?

My dilemma:  I've been driving my Z for 12 years now.  I love it.  But
it's definitely a fun-mobile, and it would certainly be more practical
to have something where I could carry the dog if need be, plus have
more room for carrying stuff, from groceries to luggage, in general.
Maybe a better "aging in place" kind of vehicle.

That said:  in 12 years, the Z has about 36,000 miles on it.  It's
been mostly a summer car, plus some errand-running in winter, but it's
not the family long-distance cruiser by any means. Putting 3,000 or so
miles per year on a car might argue for buying used, perhaps, no?

I like fun-to-drive, good looks, latest technology and safety
features, and definitely comfort for long drives.  Plus quiet, well-
insulated against road noise, is a good thing.  I find the driver's
seat in the Z perfectly comfortable; my usual passenger tells me the
passenger's seat is not that great.  But he's not the passenger very
often, so...  Anyway, wouldn't be a bad thing to have more comfort for
the passenger, but absolutely must have good seating for the driver.

What do you think?
