Good morning.

I can't help because those things way more than I want......what I want is another hatchback....and they don't make them anymore...lol.....sorry.

But I know a lot of people that drive something that looks like a station wagon thingy......I don't know the kids but looks something like this

http://www.chevrolet.com/traverse-crossover-suv/

I would say that all the companies have them and there are so many of them out there you should be able to find a used one close by......

I have an '89 Mercury Tracer that has never not started, never been stuck in mud or snow and still gets about 30 miles to the gallon but she is just falling apart, I really don't want to take it out of town anymore....but I just can't find anything that would replace her.

I have a Pontiac Grand Prix and I hate it the back is so high that it makes it hard to see to back up cause you can't see...

Blu just got a brand new Honda CRV, her 3rd, I think, so I know she's happy with it.

Sorry...didn't mean the Ford Focus...mean the Ford Escape. It's really climbed up in the ratings.

Not that it matters...but, lots of manufacturers still make hatchbacks: VW Golf, Mazda 3, Subaru Impreza, Ford Focus, Suzuki SX4, Toyota Matrix, Kia Forte, Honda Insight, Dodge Caliber to name a few.

Hi Blu,

I figured that was the one you meant.
