Suitable replacement for a 2002 Laser LXi?

Answered by CarsGuide 9 Dec 2016

As a guide you could expect to get $1500 to $3000 for your Laser. The RAV4 is a sound choice. You could get into a 5-star safety rated 2014 RAV4 for $20,000-$23,000, a similar 2012 model for $17,000-$20,000. You could also consider a Kia Sportage, Honda CR-V, or Subaru Forester.

Best car for a family of four from $20,000-$30,000

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Jul 2016

It's hard to make recommendations without knowing much about what you want. The choices of vehicles for a family of four are many and varied, as you say. I would consider a Kia Sportage SUV, Toyota Camry mid-sized sedan, or a Ford Falcon is you want a large sedan. You would certainly be better off shopping for a one to two-year-old used car.

Kia Sportage oil leak

Answered by CarsGuide 17 Apr 2015

Take it back to the dealer and inform him that the leak hasn't been fixed and ask that it be done again. Whatever was done before clearly hasn't worked and you need to insist that they continue to attempt to fix it. Let it be known that you won't be satisfied until it is fixed. On your side is the fact that he car is only a few months old. There should be no argument about fixing it. If the dealer can't fix it, escalate you claim by taking it to KIA head office.

Tiguan manufacturing issue

Answered by CarsGuide 10 Nov 2014

That Tiguan is getting old and a customer complaint is not unusual for Volkswagen. If he wants the best car then, it's the CX-5 but the Hyundai ix35 and Kia Sportage also get The Tick and are the value champions.

Similar SUVs to Forester?

Answered by CarsGuide 20 Oct 2014

The Forester has been a top choice but these days I would rate it behind the Hyundai ix35 and Kia Sportage for class and value. And the best car in that class is now the Mazda CX-5.

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Sep 2014

Drive straight past the Captiva, just like Tammie, and go for a secondhand Kia Sportage with all the fruit. It's a much better vehicle.
