- 2012, 64,000, no major issues. Little rust from the door hinge, wear & tear nicks, I wax it yearly-ish, detail it myself 2-3 times a year.
- KBB says $9-11k value but who knows what they will be worth in reality, especially after the fix changes the HP/mileage
- we like the car. good for a 50 mile commute (RT) for my wife, she loves it; we planned on handing it down to my daighter in 6-7 (!!!) years. gets 35-45mpg city-hwy
- we owe about $6900 on it.
- We have till mid 2018 to take either a flat $5800 cash + FREE fix (TBD) OR sell back the car for $20,100

I was looking into this also- someone else can verify, but I think it has limited live dvr capability- no ff 30sec, only able to record about 30mins, something like that

We've been looking at this too- SUV or minivan? We have 4 in the family and they have sports, etc. The Escape we have now is nice, but already cramped with all of us in the car (kids are 10 & 7). Looking for a bigger SUV with maybe a 3rd row, but have read about the idea that if you are looking for a 3rd row, just go with a minivan.
Personally, I don't see the big savings in the minivan, mileage isn't *that* much better, cost isn't (unless you get a Dodge Caravan, but LOL whose gonna do that). I guess it's the convienience and versatility at comparibale prices points that favor the minvan over the SUV?

Your best bet is a civic. Hands down the best decision economically. I personally can't stand riding in them however. In general: 1) test drive a lot of models, 2) find 2-3 you really like, 3) go to the web and find rankings from usnews or kbb to see which have the best resale and mpg values and whatever else you care about. 4) never lease(unless you have unique circumstances) or buy brand new(unless you have close to 100% cash)

that's what I'm thinking, tho the more miles the car has, the less we get back. I'd guess we'd get 18k in June 2018, say.
ED: looks like I'm about right. 85,000 miles gets us $19,000 or $5,600 +free fix

OK I have a good one. So we have one of the VW Deisiels from Deiselgate (TM). Here are the details:
Right now I'm delaying the decision as long as possible to see what the fix is, and how the KBB value settles. Leaning toward (heavily) selling back and turning that $20k into a 2016-2018 vehicle. TIA for the input.
