Research is so important. I spend a year or two researching a few different brands before I make the final decision. In 2004, on the day I went car shopping I had 3 "finalists" that I wanted to check out. I ended up buying a Toyota Matrix and kept that car for over 12 years and almost 200,000 miles. I recently bought an Outback and have long-term plans for that as well.


Buying a car is one of my least favorite things to do. I guess that's why mine has over 120,000 miles on it. But sometimes you gotta do it. Great tips.


Hi Jennifer,

Congratulations on the great research for buying a car. It's difficult, and you did a good job.



Hi Rebecca,

You've gotten 120,000 miles out of your car so far. Good job. Maybe you'll be like Jennifer and get 200,000 miles.

That's what I like to do. Get a good car, then run it for as many miles as I can.
