  7. Great post, I have a Mazda 2 Diesel, so economical given the mileage I do (210,000km on a 2008 reg, had it since new and no major problems so far (touch wood)) Amazing little car, I’m disappointed that they’ve stopped doing the diesel ;-(

  8. I loved the Smart Car up until I got on one. I don’t like how it feels to drive it. But I do want the Soul 😀

  9. Oh yeah, forgot about Moose. Think we’ll get him a truck then. LOL! You got some fancy trucks out there? 😉

  10. My car is white and much easier to see. One woman said she didn’t see me as she ran through a red light, one guy thought I was turning right as he turned right in front of me from the left lane. Then said it was our fault. Glad my husband was driving that time.

  11. Yay! My new car, the Kia Soul made the list. I love that it’s a bit larger than my old car (a Civic), and doesn’t look like everything else on the road.

  12. I have an 89 Honda Accord. Love it. Fits me like a glove. It’s not in great shape now so I have been borrowing my daughter’s 2003 or 4 Aztec. It sits far to hight for me. The first few times I drove it I was a nervous wreck. The drive to my parents is two hours! I took the interstate which I don’t normally do part of the way last time and had to go 75-80 and it felt as if it would blow over! I slowed down. I am so happy that my car is going to get a lot of work done on it in the next two weeks!

    I did sit in a PT. Cruiser last week and I was very surprised by how comfortable it was and I think it would be a good drive for me. I think they are so ugly though. I might be the only person who likes those little box shaped cars, can’t think of the name of them. Kind of like a cartoon car.

    I would probably love the Smart car but that is waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to small!

    I would like to try a Kia Soul though. But I am sure I will have my Honda for a lot longer unless I find an outrageous deal on a used car.

  13. That is a lot of bumps! Maybe it is more the colour of the car. Do sky blue cars get hit more? Might be worth seeing if your own cars colour is accident prone.

  14. I have a 2008 Versa and I enjoy driving a lot. It has more truck room than my husband’s Volvo S60. However, I would prefer to be in a Volvo if someone hits me – which did happen. They are such a safe car, I feel more secure. So far, I have had 2 or 3 people hit my Versa – always on the left front fender. Do I have a bull’s eye painted there I can’t see? Thank goodness for Pat Murray, he has fixed my car so it is like new – even up to my husband’s high standards. I do heartily agree with holycowgirl – what happened to style? they all look alike.

  15. Ooo, these might be affordable but there’s not one I’d want to own. Don’t mean to sound negative. Worst car I ever owned was a Chevy. Best was my old VW and my Lexus. I know, the Lexus isn’t considered an affordable but hey, I worked over 30 years to get one! And it will probably be my last! HA!

  16. 2011 Ford Fiesta a classic? No, no, no. I had a Ford Fiesta in the late 70’s. THAT is a classic Fiesta. It was a grand little hatchback that came in manual only. I loved it.

    I now have a Kia Soul + (the trim above the base). It’s my second Soul. Love it. Wouldn’t trade her for the world. Well, unless a 1930 Packard Boattailed Speedster fell into my life. 🙂

  17. I love the Chevy Spark and the Kia Soul. Stunning cars for sure Russell but do you think all my Top 10 animals in my pool that you so graciously donated me are going to fit in any of them? 😉

  18. I have a 2011 Ford Fiesta and it rocks. I disagree with some of the comments that have been made about style. I love the look of mine. It also gets 43 mpg. Which is great because I commute 75 miles every day. As for the Smart Car, If I lived in a city and was not going to commute in a place with high winds it might be a consideration if the price was not so overinflated in the states.

  19. That is a fair enough comment.Sometimes the older cars are a better option. But when it comes to driver safety a lot of older cars just wouldn’t cut the mustard.

  20. I’m sorry. This is too depressing for words. They all look the same and they’re all ugly. Devoid of beautiful lines, of showy design, of class, of brilliance, of thrill, of anything. If the automotive industry is now only selling lumps of material squished into road-possible machinery they should be denied sales. It’s my belief that car makers are taking so many drugs their imaginations have flat-lined. Buy an old car that some thought went into, combining pleasure and speed and sheer beauty.

  21. I have a smartcar and I love it. It’s got almost 200,000 km on it and I’ve never had any serious repairs needed on it. Its a great car. And as for being small, I once fit a dishwasher in it – and not a countertop dishwasher either!

Which one did you like?
