Here’s the answer…..
There are a few things that everyone can agree on. Track record is one of the biggest. Have their vehicles stood up to the test of time. Do they have a good repair record. Do they have decent resale? This is information you can get from experience and places like the magazine Consumer Report. Chances are if the track record has been good then the new models are good. The best warranties of all are the ones you never have to use.
These are the kinds of things that make up the facts about what the best vehicle is. There are more like resale value and does the vehicle fit you needs and do what you need it to do. Like a truck that has a good track record but can’t haul enough pay load.
You can read what sources have to say. Magazines like Consumer report, Car and Driver, Motor Trend and others. I have an opinion of what is best. I separate my quality choices by price range just a s a way to keep track. 0-20,000, 20,000 to 35,000, 35,000 to 60,000 and so on. If you email me I will give you my suggestions based on 35 years of experience
