I prefer Japanese Cars (beside Mitsubishi)

I have nothing against other brands .. it's just because my first car was a Honda and I do basic maintenance stuff on our family cars (mostly from the big 3 Japanese brands)

Subaru and Mazda are also reliable Japanese brands but not many people know about them

Nissan cars' quality is slipping in the recent years

I love Toyota and I love older Nissans. My dream car is a 240z, I think they're gorgeous as hell.

I basically have the biggest beef with Ford. I can't stand their vehicles and every single one I've heard of friends or family owning has been absolute crap. Not too fond of other American brands either frankly, but that might be in part by the fact that my parents have been buying Toyotas for years now and the last non-Toyota we had was my shitty Chevy Malibu that I got from a used car lot when I was pretty close to the start of driving and I dumped so much money into that piece of shit that I never want to look back from my adorable Yaris.

They (my family) all have cars except for me since I only got my student's license last month lol (So lazy)

But I've tried all of them but I prefer our SUV Toyota (Fortuner)

Also, we love Toyota since:

(1) Good engines
(2) Fast, efficient and fuel-wise
(3) Good re-sale value

Ferraris are great except some of them spontaneously combust




.......so I'd go with Audi since they usually don't do that sort of stuff

Don't currently own a car, but my parents were always fond of Lexus/Toyota.

Anyone have any recs for a good electric, perhaps hybrid vehicle? I've been looking at the Chevrolet Volt and Spark EV, since I'm near a Chevrolet dealer and have had a chance to test drive those, but I'm curious about other brands.

I would love to get my hands on an old vw slug bug. Those are amazing cars. For modern day I would get a truck that has a diesel. I won't drive anything from GM though. I hate GM.

I would go with neither of those. You will be wasting money. Stick with Toyota. They have good hybrids.

No, I typically have my radio or phone with Bluetooth connected though so I listen to music or podcasts (but not loud) I keep it at a level where I could hear if something went wrong with the engine or tires, etc. It sounds pretty quiet to me. It's not completely quiet, but as quiet as you would expect a car of that cost to sound. It feels like a luxury car but priced like a lower end car. You can see the miles per gallon on the 2017 is way different than the 2016 (the 2016 is rated for more) so I assume the 2017 has more weight or something to dampen the sound a bit more than the 2016. I paid $21,500 (after taxes) for my 2016 Mazda 3 which I got the Appearance Package and Equipment package at no additional cost because I negotiated with the dealer saying I didn't want those packages so if they want me to buy this car they have to take off the cost for those options and they did very fast. They still made around $800 or so off of my purchase but just not as huge a margin as someone who doesn't do their research. $21,500 after taxes is very low compared to other cars on the road so even if it sounds a bit noisy compared to other cars I wouldn't put out an extra $5,000+ to make it a tiny bit quieter.

Note: Noise on the highway only appears noticeable really after about 70 MPH. The highways in my area only go up to 65 which lets me go 65 - 70 MPH and I barely hear anything, but someone told me that at 80 MPH it does start getting a bit noisy so if you're a speed-demon and want to go 80+ MPH.
