Cars for the megacommuter
So I have just taken a job that requires ~130 mile/day (all highway) commute for the next 3 years. My 1999 nissan altima is just not going to cut it. I was looking for some suggestions on cars. My only requirements are:
- really good fuel efficiency
- cruise control
- budget friendly
I don't have a lot to spend... still waiting to hear from my bank but under $18,000 and preferably under $16,000. I've never bought a new car always drove used ones into the ground but with this commute I need something reliable that won't always be in the shop.
I know there probably aren't a lot of cars out there that fit the bill but... any advice?
