Thanks for the suggestions. I like Mazdas, the Maxda6 is arguably the most fun mid size to drive in my opinion. I also like the quiet, low maintenance of the Accord or Camry. Car is mostly major metro area driving, possibly weekend road trips. But we often rent a car for those.

i like the CX-5, goes back to I believe 2013. The 13, 14, 16 brakes score in Consumer Reports was not good. (Not that CR is the be all end all)....other years fine...had lower score for noise in 13, 15. But most scores were strong especially recent years.

The car is likely to eventually possibly to get passed around to a few people so it is not a quick answer as type of driver. It probably isn't the only one I am buying but I am starting with this

Generally I like Honda, Toyota, Hyundai (interior spaces a bit smaller) Mazda brands. i coule probably win the lottery and not spend $60-75k on a luxury car. I would rather put that money into other things. Just my preference. I have had a few family members in the car business but they own brands I didn't prefer while they drive luxury cars for themselves. So I am not going to them, lol

We can always trade something in and upgrade in the future. I have never bought used before and I often bought new from people I knew in the past, so that is really the big difference for me this time. 

I am generally a mid size car small suv person as long as it isn't a big group of people need for larger. Won't need that here. So small suv, mid size or compact for this one.

I prefer to just ride the subway (or get a car service) and call it a day, but I have driven a lot over the years either for fun road trips or with clients for work, including all over some states.

Own a Mazdaspeed6 and its a lot of fun to drive.  Have you considered a Tesla 3?  They start under 40k.

Also a big Mazda fan.

We've owned a 3, a 6, and 2 Miatas/MX-5s.

Glow jr is still driving the 3.  It's closing in on 200K miles.  He will probably be looking for a newer car this fall, but in the meantime, it's a perfect car to own in urban Seattle - it's reliable and he doesn't worry about someone dinging it.

That is good info, thanks. I like the hatchback version too. I was curious about Mazdas longer term and how they hold up vs say a Toyota or Honda which I know are two of the best long term. I know very recent models have been well received.

I've had various cars but I keep coming back to these mentioned brands. I had a new Grand Cherokee once, and while I know they are much better now, it had many issues with electrical, etc....and I know mileage is still bad. I got tired of going to the gas station so frequently too.

I haven't. I have a friend in D.C. that drives a compact car around Th District to fit into tight spots and a Tesla for fun. He's a big fan.  Probably not in consideration this time.

Jeep products are the least reliable vehicles you can own.  Stay away!

Our 2013 CX-5 has only needed routine maintenance and is at 130k.  Brakes, tires, and oil

  Don't sleep on Kias or Hyundai either. 

If the buying used these both have the longest warranty in the business and the 2nd owner might have a long factory warranty still in place.

Add me to the list of Mazda fans. Love my Mazda 6.

The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

I believe Hyundai is 5 year 60k mile 2nd owner, new vehicle warranty...Toyota and Honda are 3 year 36k miles, not sure about Mazda, have to look up.

Typically the warranty, or at least the powertrain part of it, is non transferable.

shoothoops nailed it

Second and/or subsequent owners have powertrain components coverage under the 5-Year/60,000-Mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

I have an '09 Explorer with ~130,000 miles, and I plan on driving it into the ground. It's been a great car for me (knock on wood) thus far. Named her Jackie. Cars are better to you if you name them.

You guys are a bunch of wimps. I have a '03 Highlander with 285,000 miles on it and expect it to go for 350,000. Had a Chevy van for business. I think the guy who bought the business had well over 300,000 on it before he bought a new one. 130,000 miles? Kids stuff!

I am in my 10th year of ownership of my 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe, by far the longest I've owned a car.

It just needed work on one of the axles and I was very pleasantly surprised to learn the entire thing was covered under the 10-year powertrain warranty. Cost to me: $0.00 -- on a 9 1/2 year old car! Pretty cool, and definitely something I will think about when it's time for me to get my next car.

And yes, as others have said, only the original owner gets that warranty. I actually had to sign something verifying that I was the car's only owner.

That's impressive. Great timing on your part

I have 06 Explorer with around 200,000+ miles on it.  My older daughter loves driving it.

Some follow up:

Does anyone have any experience/feedback buying from online places such as Csrvana or Vroom?

Does anyone have any experience buying through wholesale club such as Sam's or Costco?

What about non-new car dealers, used car places? Meaning places with vehicles included on many websites sold for a bit less but possibly less put into the vehicles.

What about Craigslist type of experiences?

Much of my past.buying experience has been with new car dealers.

Thanks..

My co-worker bought a used vehicle via Vroom.   He had a positive experience.  The truck was in good condition. they brought it to his driveway and took his used vehicle away.   Everything was like clockwork.

Bought a couple of cars from Carmax. Very hassle - free process, but they tend to be a little pricier than haggling with a dealer.

Have some patience, FFS.

General advice when buying a used car from anyone is to take it to an auto repair shop during the test drive and pay them to give it a once over.

Anyone that doesn't let you do that is probably trying to hide something from you.
