    VIN Numbers that start with 1-assembled in the USA. 2-assembled in Canada. 3-assembled in Mexico. It could be a foreign company but the VIN will tell you where is is built. I would much rather buy something that costs that much to help out our American workers than those in Korea....

    Do online research of the different packages ie. SL, SEL, LTD, etc. Decide what options you want before going in and do not settle for less. Also check the dealers invoice price and the manufacture's rebates and incentives and refuse to pay a dealers prep fee. Good luck and don't be shy about walking away it is your money.
    I will never recommend any vehicle with a CVT type transmission. A buddy of mine had a transmission shop and he says he's never seen a good one. Every Nissan has them nowadays and they're just a ticking time bomb. The parts aren't terribly expensive but the labor is very high.

    My wife is very happy with her 2016 Ford Explorer. We considered many options but Ford took care of her the best, not just professional but very personable, so that's why we went with them. You can't go wrong with Hyundai or Kia nowadays either though. Both have really stepped up in the world as of late. You have a pretty tough decision on your hands but I don't think you'll be disappointed in either you make.

    It always amazes me that I come into a store willing to pay as much as 30k for a new car, and sales staff don't have time for me. Funny, Carmax will sell me what I want at about 35 percent off new, with a full warranty and they're actually polite. I'd prefer new, but you know, I'll settle for used and respect.

    I'll second that. My wife has always driven Lexuses (Lexi?). First a 300, then the 400, then a 420. I thought the 420 was about as nice as you could get but the Hyundai Genesis G90 is one FINE automobile, and for $20 grand less than a Lexus!

    I drive a Kia Soul and actually love the car, and it was very inexpensive (used with 40k miles for $9800). Good gas mileage too. Unfortunately I have not had good experiences with the American car market in my price range. Maybe their higher end cars are nice, but the lower end ones I've purchased have left much to be desired. If you buy a Kia Soul, be sure to get one 2012 or newer. They switched to a timing chain instead of a timing belt, and the 6 speed transmission in 2012. The newer transmission is quite good on this car.

    After a lot of research I bought a Nissan Rogue in February and I absolutely love it. I considered the Edge but the Ford salesman turned my wife off and that was the kiss of death for him and the Edge. I also considered the Kia Sorento but I could not pass up the deal they offered me for the Rogue.

    My personal experience and advice from professional mechanics says to avoid Nissans like the plague, give any turbo engine a wide pass and never ever buy a a car with a CVT. Other than trucks GM, Ford and Fiat-Chrysler ain't worth a dang.

    I like the Nissan Rogue, wish they would step up their warranty coverage. Also had a Rogue for a rental for about a week. I have a Nissan now and have been pretty happy with it. I may look at them again if I can't make a good deal on the Hyundai. I'm not really a car person so I don't plan to spend a lot for all the bells and whistles.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.
