    It's a good list, not that it's relevant to me lol . Where are they getting their vehicle prices though? They all seemed SUPER low, someone point me in the direction of the IIHS car store lmao.

    Yeah, 4500 for a 2005-2010 Ody? Made me feel better about the 2500 they gave me for a trade in on my beat up 2003, but still, seems low.

    My kids are going to have to share a 2006 Hybrid Escape, no matter how much dd1 hates it. It has sort of a funky old car smell and it's top heavy--wobbly on country hills--, so she remembers being carsick in it, I told her the driver's seat isn't as bad!

    Re: Updated teen vehicle recommendations

    Interesting since we were test driving cars for DS1 last night. Surely they realize that few of those options are things a teen would want to drive. Although I'm not sure that we're going to consent to the Honda CRZ he's got his eye on either even with it's excellent crash test scores.
