    If money wasn't an issue, I would replace my 2011 Forester with a Toyota 4Runner. Presently, my 2011 Forester (purchased in 2013 with 15,000 miles) does what I need it to do, & it is 2.5X manual. I do prefer manuals, but I would take 4Runner if someone gave me one. I wouldn't refuse a Highlander either.

    My 2017 Mirage just clicked past 33,000 miles this week. I've probably put less than 5,000 miles on my Forester since purchasing the Mirage, but there are times when I really need the Forester and it's paid for. My Forester presently has 93,000 miles on it, but it had a new short block replacement done @ 90,000 miles (compliments of Subaru). It should last me a long time.

    If I was forced to buy a full size pickup, I would probably consider the Toyota Tundra or Ford F-series. I would prefer a smaller pickup, but I am not overly impressed with any of them at the moment. Once again, if someone gave me Tacoma, I wouldn't refuse it.

    There really isn't anything on the market that I like better than what I have (Forester/Mirage combo). I have only bought manuals my entire life (will be turning 57 this month). It's nice not having vehicle payments, too!

    What do you guys think of the ioniq hybrid? I am not normally a hybrid fan but with the tax discounts and amazing city MPG it really shines.

    I've seen a few on the road. Took a minute to realise what it was. The numbers look pretty impressive, I'd consider on of those before a tesla or something costing $10-20k more. But I'm sure in the long run it may be make more financial sense to buy a cheap Mirage and keep it going with used parts for 10-15 years. Being able to get 57mpg and 600miles of range would sure be nice. I'd drive one.

    MSRP $23k I see it listed anywhere from $17-20k on cargurus for a better ballpark. Then $4,543 tax discount. puts it down to $12.5k-15.5k. Some employers throw up to an extra $5k in and it might even end up being significantly cheaper than a mirage. 59MPG highway with a 11.9 gal tank is 700 miles! Plus you get state and local discounts, hybrid/ev parking and commuter lanes, etc.

    21-16MPG better is over 1/3 less fuel price. 15k per year is like $330 saved. 30k per year $660. etc. If you don't get the discounts and drive less than 15k it might not be worth it, but otherwise it saves about as much as stock market would gain on 8k. Also it comes with significantly bigger tires than a Mirage and the resale value seems much better. Android auto and carplay built in. 139 HP. Lane keeping. Collision Avoidance. Keyless by default. No CVT. Center armrest. Auto defogging. Daytime running lights. Win win win win win.

    Not here, we only get federal rebates for full electric or plug in hybrids. Here in Oilberta there are no incentives to buy hybrids like there are/were in other provinces. If you can get it down to the price of a Mirage I'd buy one. Otherwise it wouldn't make sense for me.
    I don't drive much anymore, mostly to work and back, pick up kids from school and beer store trips.
    I imagine cost of ownership could be higher if you compared a hybrid to a Mirage over 150k miles? Maybe not? The ioniq has a dual clutch automatic, hard to say if that's gonna be more or less reliable as the hit or miss cvt in the Mirage. Direct injection will likely require fuel additive once in a while too. The biggest thing that's turned me off hybrids or ev's is the cost to replace a battery.

    What kinda hyundai left you stranded? 02 Accent, 85 pony?

    I'll give almost anything a try once. Except for bum darts and schnoodling kinda things. Wife has had kia's for years with no problems, they share the same drivetrain if I'm not mistaken?
    I got my Dad's, uh, I don't know the model but it was a small 2004 SUV thing, V6, with about 80Kms on it, Tuscon, maybe? This was in 2013 when Dad died, so it was only 9 years old. My Dad was good at keeping his cars maintained. This thing was so unpredictable. You could drive it a short hop to the mall, or a medium highway stretch, winter or summer, and when you shut it off it was a crap shoot if you tried to start it within the hour. If it failed to start you had to wait at least several, like 5+ hours. It never showed the problem if it was driven 200+ kilometers before being shut off.

    Then it would start, guaranteed. This b*ll**** happened at least monthly if not more. I couldn't use it to take my toddler daughter anywhere so the car was just a boat anchor in our driveway.

    My partner had a 4 cyl. 2010 Accent with 95kms in 2018 that had exactly the same behaivour. The frequency of the no-start was much less, perhaps twice a year, but it was the same as the 2004 when it happened. I read somewhere this was a known issue and there was no guaranteed fix.
    Zero, 2014 ES Plus 5MT, written off but not forgotten.
    Zero II, 2014 SE, 5MT, climate She's HOME now!
    Shelby AKA "Cute", 2017 ES 5MT, A/C.

    Mirage owners look at the world differently than everyone else, but in a better way
    We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century, the greatest small car now available!

    I love the Veloster Turbo. I really do. I'd own one without question. I also very much like the Elantra GT Sport with the 1.6 turbo. Lots of fun. I got the chance to drive a Kia Stinger this summer and it's a hell of a car.

    Hyundai and Kia are actively trying to make great cars and I'd argue they're doing it. While I have not owned one yet, I certainly wouldn't hesitate to.
