I never dreamed I'd be getting savvy car advice from Julie Gammack! But I know, from this column and from past conversations, that you've researched all this, and you've got my attention. I'm creeping up on new car time, or so my dealer New Way Ford in Coon Rapids & Jefferson says. I wanted to go hybrid or electric two years ago, but ran into unavailability. I really like the Ford Edge (at least I think that's what it is, without looking) I bought then, and so far I really like New Way's "forever warranty." But I know I'll be thinking of your "Evie" when I buy again.

A place for your purse! That’s one thing I’ve really missed since my Plymouth Voyager days where there was a recessed area between the front seats. The photo of your knowledgeable salesman was good to see. Looks like a great car.

Excellent story. Kia is truly making a name for itself, surpassing prior "prestigious" brands. I follow car news a bit, and a Kia denotes a savvy purchase these days.

I enjoyed reading this, Julie. Good research. No way I’d buy a Tesla now.

We've had a Tesla Model 3 Long Range for almost two years and love it. The phantom breaking has improved over time and we've gotten used to doing everything on the center screen. We looked at a Hynudai Kona before we bought the Tesla. The Hyundai dealer in Des Moines told us they had no intention to carry electric vehicles nor would they service them. That made the choice easy. Of course our son works for Tesla so that provided a lot of incentive as well. We'll never go back to a gas car...maybe hydrogen if I live long enough. 🙂
