That's not strictly true and you know it!

Popularity does not equate with quality and defining quality is pretty subjective anyway.

I'm no car expert but I'm guessing that the common quality about most of these vehicles is that they're cheap to buy (but not necessarily cheap to run in terms of gas mileage).

I've got to get a new car in the next few weeks. I'm totally stumped. I want something small and that runs in the wicked winters we have here.

No they are not the cheapest to buy ..by a long way.. and the consuption of fuel on any of them would depend greatly on the specification.. a V8 hemi is not as economical at a 6 cylinder engine..
The top seller Ford F150 can range from $23k to $40k with engines from 231 hp to 380hp

Mattbut is obviously a Honda fan..

To be honest Ray, I've no idea. I had a fiat Punto in Spain and a sporty thing in London. We get snow storms here in winter so it's got to be something that can cope with that, and is not monster sized.

Are we thinking new or used

I was thinking a year old. Not brand new as they drop $s as soon as you drive them off the lot.

Some kind of Subaru? They run really well in rough terrain, poor weather.

I really can't understand why a cyclist (Lance Armstrong) is advertising the vehicles. Doesn't really match the image of the cars

Addendum: I didn't see Ray6's post until after I'd posted my message.
