These recomendations seem very UN-AMERICAN with all of the imported cars listed. The
people making these recomendations up have to be DEMOCRATS as they forget to recomend
some of the fine autos built with AMERICAN names by AMERICIAN corporations. I drive a 2011
Chevy Malibu which I think is mostly Nort American, brand new it was around $15,400 with
discounts and incentives and it has most of the options mentioned. No heated seats but driver seat is 6-8 way and if you need more than that you must have a bad rear end. Keep buying the
imported cars and most everything else and when your kids and grand-kids come home to
move in with you because they do not have a job you will wonder why. Wake up AMERICA we
need work to support ourselves and our loved ones. If we need to import all our wants we will
be doomed. JUST THE FEELINGS OF AN OLD MAN
As usual, this article is a poorly researched joke. Comfort & efficiency should be stressed.
Too often see seniors driving vehicles too big for them to control.
This list is total ****. Perfect vehicle for a retiree a MINIVAN? Seriously. This person obviously isnt aware that retirees are on fixed incomes and most do not drive around in $30,000+ vehicles. They are looking at cheaper vehicles to save them money and get from point A to b at an affordable price with decent features and good gas mileage since majority do not drive much.
Chevrolet Sonic was super popular for retirees when I sold Chevrolets.
I’m not sure why age should dictate ones preference in automobiles. After all, Jack LaLanne was driving a C-5 Corvette when he was in his 90’s. And Paul Newman was still racing cars professionally when he was in his 70’s. So not everyone’s taste in cars changes as they get older. I certainly know that my own taste in cars will never change regardless of age. And if money is tight in retirement I’ll still prefer to buy a used high performance car than a brand new econo-box. Of course I have to admit that my father, before he died at 96, found it very difficult to get in and out of my current sports car. So if ones body is not holding up so well then I guess I can see how seating comfort and ease of entry and exit would be a major concern.
Seems like there are more responses from "the lonely hearts club" rather than feedback related to the article...Hey MSN can you block the "spam"?
I'm very close to retirement age and I just bought a Corvette. It will be with me well into retirement. I don't understand why the cars on the list are any better than the thousands of other cars available. They are probably perfectly fine cars, but I don't want any of them. And I don't think the list is relevant.
My wife loves her 2006 Grand Marque. It's like driving from our living room easy chair. Makes long trips a positive joy. For me, just for driving from site A to site B, I like my 2007 Ford Taurus workhorse kind of car. Few frills but very reliable.
