Hi guys, a little offtop, need some advice. Looking for a car for my wife. Need something small, economical , and not Chinese))) I think over Toyota Etios Liva, according to the description, the machine is good. What you think? Waiting for some feedback. Thank you!

A lady at work just bought a Chevy Cruise and it looked fairly nice. Shes very happy with it. This time of year is best for buyers. She got a decently loaded one for low $18k new. They came down like 8k because its a 2018 they need to clear our.

Honda makes a nice vehicle if you can afford it. Ive sat down three times at different Honda dealerships over the years. In all three cases, they would not move one single penny off the full retail price.

Maybe buying isn't the only way to go. My buddy is a lease manager at a Toyota store and he tells me that you can lease a new Corolla with most all the power toys and with a 15,000k per year mileage allowance, for approximately $230 Canadian dollars per month and that it comes with maintenance and road side coverage as well. That's $2760 per year and she (and possibly your kids, if any) drive a new car that's totally covered. Just something to consider.  :cheers:

I saw one of those at the Walter Chrysler museum in Auburn Hills. You'd need to be a real girly-girl to drive it around much.  :cheers:

I understand that the model you proposed is a model of the Indian market, so I can offer you such an option as Honda Amaze . Nice and practical sedan, choose a cute color for your wife and I think she will be happy  :bananasmi

I really like Mini Coopers and if you really love her, get the "S" model!
