My mom is looking at new cars, I need some suggestions. She has been looking at crossovers. She is interested in the Nissan Juke but I think that thing is hideous and she will usually listen to what I have to say. When we go car shopping we don't even take my dad just me and my mom go haha.

Needs:
-Good gas mileage as she will be putting a lot of miles on it for work
-Reliability, low maintenance costs (obviously)
-She likes having a sunroof
-I think she should get navigation, like I said for work she will be driving a lot and in unfamiliar places.
-She likes "peppy" cars so a small turbocharged engine should do nicely.

Doesn't really want a Civic. She's a cheapskate so doesn't want to break the bank either. I would say realistically <$25k.

My suggestions: Although it is not the biggest or fits her categories very well but I really like the new Hyundai Genesis 2.0T coupe. K go!

I like the Genesis line, but how will they hold up over the years? That's what I always ask myself.

I think a new Civic SI 4dr is a good choice. It meets all of your requirements. A used RDX (only the SH-AWD model) is also a good choice, but the gas mileage isn't as good as it should be.

But for new, Civic SI.

The CR-Z is also awesome, but probably too small for her needs.

Haha well I was talking to her this morning and the only car she specifically said she didn't want was a civic. I think that is a good choice too.

Forgot to add she likes things that have a little bit of character. Just to tell you about her choice of styling.

She likes:
-Volkswagen Kharmen Ghia
-Audi TT
-Lexus SC430

But she needs something more practical and new lol. Thanks for the input Wes. If you don't know by now I value your opinion very highly. As do I for the rest of you!

The styling on the new Kia optima looks really nice but once again it's a Kia same thing with Hyundai. -__-

lol damn, I completely missed the part about not wanting a Civic. Fail!

If she doesn't mind getting a car that's slightly used, a G35 sedan is a good option. It's practical, comfortable, well-optioned, etc... The VQ engine will last til the end of the world (My QX4 just hit 160,000 miles and runs like it did on day 1).

I like the styling of the new VWs, but I question the reliability. VW/Audi was known for their electrical gremlins a few years ago. I don't know if they've improved yet.

Question:

So cars over a certain age don't have to pass any emissions tests, right? Does that mean that a person can put an engine in the car that was never allowed in the USA and make it legal?
