I own a Volvo XC60 and highly recommend it. Sometimes I feel the boot space in my car is insufficient- the XC40 is a lot smaller


BMW x1


No. Volvo XC40


The A5 Sportback is surprisingly versatile, really good looking and priced reasonably


It’s not entry level but I have a Lexus GX and my wife has a MB GLS.


…but entirely outdated infotainment and way over priced.


Suv or sedan?

What do you define as entry level?

If <50k I would say like a used X3 or X5, New C class, Porsche Macan, etc.

Mercedes GLC or Audi Q5 if you want an SUV

Pro tip indeed!

Used xc40, xc60, or x3

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Id go Mercedes C or E class for sedan; Audi Q5/Q7 or Mercedes GLC/GLE for suv

Have an xc90 would never recommend smaller than x5/q7 or xc60. Kids stuff takes up a lot of space. I got rid of my infinit qx50 because it was too small, one stroller and the trunk space was done.

They did say entry level tho

If you enjoy driving, get a BMW 3 series. It’s enough space for 1 kid, plus allows you to have fun when you’re by yourself. Or else get an X1 or X3

I4 40 or M50 if you want some good fun. Surprisingly practical too.

Seriously wanna divorce my wife who’s not necessarily a bad person but I feel angry about her all the time. I always have to fight with her over the small things. I feel she’s playing a power game and trying to take control whenever she gets the chance.

The only moment she steps back and be the person I want is when I get really angry and she can sense it. Why do I have to do this every time to get peace?

No kids, but even I am not afraid to divorce, I don’t feel it’s worth it!

2. Too early to speculate, I know, but can one expect some crazy good deals on the outgoing current gen next year?

Moving to Chicago suburbs and thinking of buying my first car. New driver here, need recommendations on things I should consider (lease vs 2nd hand etc.) as well as resources I could look into?


I make 130k (will scale up over next few years) and want a 55k Tesla M3 LR. How bad of an idea is that?


Seeing a very good deal in used cars. survey- buy rental cars in market or not. Good condition, new, too good to be true price, but not single owner driven.. thoughts?

Was putting the top down today on the benz and got the error message “truck partition”. Ofc had to go to YouTube to fix it but has anyone else had that issue before? Regardless of brand bmw, MB , Porsche etc.


For those of y'all who are truck folks:

Entirely subjective, but what do you think are the best looking current gen 1/2+ ton trucks? My rankings:

Half ton: GMC > Ford = Ram > Toyota > Chevy > Nissan
3/4 and 1 ton: Ram > GMC > Ford >>>>>Chevy

Thoughts on this approach:
I’m looking to get DCU auto loan but won’t get it in time for pick up. Going to go with Tesla (2.99%) and then pay it off in a month and then refinance with DCU. Does that work?


Anyone have the new Ford Mach E? Always thought a Tesla was my next car but I’m really loving the Mach E


Thinking about getting an Audi eTron or a Jaguar i-Pace. Interested in hearing owner experiences for both... no, I don’t want to know what other car you think is better and I refuse to get a Tesla, so save it.
