Help me pick out a new car!
My company is changing my benefits concerning the use of private vehicles for company use. They will be reimbursing me 55.5 cents/mile. Because the benefit is mileage based, and I need another car anyway, I need help finding the most practical car for my needs.
My needs. I need dependability. I will be driving 30k-40k miles/year. My tool box for field services weighs about 50 lbs and is very hard to get in and out of the trunk of a sedan or coupe, so a hatchback will be a requirement. I also carry another 100 lbs of assorted tools and electrical parts. Sometimes I will need to fold down the rear seat for additional room and may have to haul 300-400 lbs of batteries on occasion. I would like to get at least 35 miles/gallon. My budget is between $20k and $30k. I have some ideas, but I would like to see where you guys take me. I plan to buy in 2 months after I see how the mileage reimbursement affects my budget.
Thanks in advance.
