What's a good first car?

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Jul 2018

Because you want to travel to the snow, and visit farms, I would suggest an all-wheel drive compact wagon, and with your need for low running and service costs I would suggest that it be an Asian brand. Models to consider would be a Subaru Forester, Nissan X-Trail or Kia Sportage.

It’s a difficult one for the dealership to fix, as it seems like it only happens after being driven for some time at high speed. It’s hard to do that at the dealership. But it would seem like the steering is losing assistance. Check the pump.

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Sep 2012

I would ask the dealer to demonstrate that it is an induction noise, if necessary by driving other vehicles, which should have the same noise if he is correct.
