We own a used car lot, so I've driven tons of vehicles, but my last 4 have been Ford Escapes. My current car has the 6 cylinder motor and gets mid-20s for mpg and pulls my 12 foot utility trailer with ease. Also, I've only got front wheel drive, but with decent tires, it's as good in deep snow as anything I've driven.

We have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 4x4...out here we need 4 wheel drive about 1/2 the year since we live on a dirt road! In fact the truck is the most comfortable vehicle we've ever owned. This is farm truck country...drive to town and the streets are lined with trucks, mostly 3/4 and 1 ton many with flatbeds with hyro beds to lift big round bales. And always a cow dog on board!

2005 Jetta TDI wagon (ca. 180,000miles) purchased for commuting (44mpg in combined driving). I would replace it with a diesel outback if they ever bring them over here.

When we are not driving the Expys we have a 2004 Ford F 150 short bed 4x4. In 10 years it has only needed oil changes until last year when I put new tires on it.

We bought a Camry Hybrid in 2007 since we were retiring in about a year from then and hoped to travel a lot more. First fall after retirement, we took a 6,000 trip from Lander, Wyoming to Minnestoa, across Ontario to Connecticut to North Carolina and back through the middle of the country. Averaged 35 mpg for the whole trip. We have had no major problems with the car and it's a very comfortable highway driver. As far as in town, we get around 30 mpg. The sticker on the car said 38 highway and 40 in-town, but I believe that was way wrong. The new Camry Hybrids are suppose to get around 38 mpg overall with over 40 on the highway. We have been very pleased with ours to date with over 80,000 miles on the car to date.
