*This week’s question comes from one of our own staff. If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments below.*
Its time! My Ford Windstar has over 100,000 miles, the automatic doors do not work anymore, and it cost me a new transmission about three years ago. I never miss an oil change and believe cars should not be disposable items to be replaced every few years, but the time has come to “pimp a new ride.”
Here is the equation:
- Must fit six comfortably. (This means some crossovers are off the list; a six-year-old with his knees in his chest is not comfortable.)
- Fuel efficient
- And, yes, I would prefer to help our economy and buy American, if possible
Can all these factors = my new family car?
After extensive research, I am leaning towards the Honda Pilot, for reliability mostly. But I’m having trouble with it not being American, although I can be convinced because it is put together in the U.S. I am looking for feedback, especially if you own a car that fits this description.
