As many of you know, Rolla was totalled earlier this month. She put up a good fight and did her best to protect me. I will forever love her but it’s time to move on.

In the meantime I’ve rented a car for $1160 a month from Enterprise. With insurance included it’s a steal. I’m considering a 500$ a month budget for the vehicle itself for my purchase, however, there’s a major catch.

I will be driving 2000+ miles a WEEK for the next 3 months. After that I should be doing 3000+ miles a month. Just for reference, I’ve driven 30k miles this year to date.

Depreciation will be too much I’d have to keep it forever. I’m driving a fully loaded Rogue at the moment and now understand the appeal of the CUV.

So what am I looking for?

1) Highway comfort - 6'3 and built (shoulder hits b-pillar)

2) Fuel economy, 25mpg + (not gonna complain if I get 50)

3) Safety, after being t-boned I have 6 months of physio...

4) Safety/Driving assits

5) Panoramic sunroof

6) Apple Car Play/Leather

7) Electric Seats

Budget: 500$ a month/30k give or take Canadian

Use: highway... only myself or the gf and I.

I do prefer a higher ride height but am open to anything.
