    I really want her to look at the Escape, but she refuses. I'd be happy for her to have a GC or Edge, but I still haven't found the right one.
    I think you cannot go wrong with an edge or GC.

    Here,

    And here,
    http://www.autotrader.ca/a/Volvo/XC6...srt=3&showVs=1

    Everyone I know that owns or has owned a Volvo has loved them. The XC60 might be too small for you but itís worth a try. Good friend of mine has had a XC90 for 10 years and the only problem he had was the heater fan died. 2 hour job, $180 part.

    The first one has 270,000km. Not happening.

    The second one has 200,000km and is significantly over budget.

    Maybe also worth checking out something like an Outlander XLS (v6 + leather + awd)

    https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/...ationFlag=true

    or a forester XT (not sure which Forester trims come in leather to be honest)

    https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/...ationFlag=true

    Both of those are over 200k but both under $10k maybe a direction to check out anyways.

    Personally, I wouldn't touch a high mileage mitsubishi with a 10 foot pole.

    Is Chris my mechanic? First and foremost he's a friend, one of many I've made through this forum over the years. Yes I have rented his hoist and/or shop space. Yes I have hired him for his expertise in welding. And yes I have sought after his advice as a mechanic... All of which he has been more than happy to accommodate. Which is why I quite often recommend him when people are looking for a shop or mechanic. But I do 99% of my own work. (Although perhaps not as in-depth as mr. sexypants with the fozzy)


    I have considered a Mitsubishi, as somebody else pointed out (Jugz maybe?) they have that 10 year warranty thing going on, so if I could find something a 5-7 years old with decent mileage for the right price, I'd at least go look.


    And I really don't want something with 200K+ on it.

    The whole point here is to transition into a vehicle of similar value (albeit for a different purpose), from a similar year, with similar mileage.
