Hi, so far I've been renting a car for past 2 years, and now decided it's time to stop throwing significant amount towards rental place, and put the same amount into buying a car with loan. So, I'm after a car that is big enough to fit 2 bicycles after folding back seats, but nothing too big, nothing fancy, something that will get me from point A to point B (example: Mazda CX5, Mitsubishi Outlander, Subaru Outback, maybe Nissan Juke...)
What is your opinion, new or used, car shop or private person, any preferred time of year when cars are on sale, which brands or car dealers to avoid, which you can recommend? To take a loan from the car dealership or do banks have better deals... Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated.
