I read that and laughed at the 2002 M5 which is an amazing car but super expensive to maintain so that $1 a mile ain't gonna cut it lol
That list in general is pretty funny
Lol yeah you can't run an m5 even if you were getting lux rates
535D would be a good one though. Heck even the 2011 528s get over 30mpg and can be had under $22k
I was close to grabbing a Merc E350 Bluetec but I ended up going with the BM 535D
I'm back and fourth between a 2008 MB GL320 (last year before bluetec) or a slightly newer X5 35D. I currently have a 335i and I'm a huge bmw fan. The X5 is definetly the more fun suv compared to the Gl but the gl gets slightly better milage, doesn't need ad blue and seems to be slightly more reliable and a lot bigger
There are things about the Crown viccys that i miss...
Trunk space for 4 people,
the mercury Grand Marquis had even more space than that,
Then i remember all the shifts i had to drop $50 gassing it up and i'm like... NO THANKS.
I'm sticking with my top three...
X - 04-07 Taurus sedan, 3.0 Vulcan, SEL trim, leather.
XL - 05-07 Grand Caravan, 3.3 flex fuel, Stow & Go seating in leather.
Select - 11+ Buick Lacrosse, 3.6 engine, CXL trim, leather.
Cheap. Reliable. Effective. Easy to work on. Comfortable to drive long hours. List over.
Ford transit connect "the car gets approximately 29 mph [sic] on the highway" lol
Btw what's up with the topic name, I think no one has ANY clue what you were posting about??
I think they nailed why my ratings suck when driving my 335d though:
"It’ll squeeze more rides per hour, likely scaring the sh.t. out of the people lucky enough to get a ride, if that’s your sort of thing."
"It’s not the most fuel efficient car in the world, but it’s a small price to pay to see an unsuspecting millennial clutch their pearls as they powerslide all the way to their destination."
