How many miles per pile do you get with those last two?

My TV is my daily driver, that's the main reason it is a gasser. The DW has a Cadillac SRX. She won't let me drive it much because she says I drive like Mario Andretti in it.

I try to explain that it's her car's fault because the gas pedal is WAY to easy to push down compared to my 2500HD, and my foot is not trained to be "dainty"!

Which pile? The one in front they start with or the one in back they end with?

TV is my daily driver and DW has a Toyota 4Runner. Love it, and use it a lot for errands and local stuff because it's a lot easier to maneuver.

And - drums please - with Honda's cylinder deactivation I get ~31 mpg 70% highway 30% city.

I really love my Honda. Makes me grin every time I get on it for a merge. More spendy than 25k but perhaps a low mileage certified used might fit the bill.
I'd get the 4 cyl & manual to tip the scales under 25K.

I had a 1999 Accord from 2000 to 2006 (175K miles) loved it. I'd be driving a 2013 Accord now if the Honda dealer hadn't dropped the ball.

There's more to fun-to-drive than acceleration. Not slowing down for the turns is my favorite. SWMBO calls it 'driving on 2 wheels'. She objects (loudly) when I leave the cruise control set to the speed limit when changing highways. Or accelerating through the entire left turn when the light turned green....

Trucks just don't understand what a well-balanced sedan can do.

TV is my daily driver. DW has an Audi Q5 TDI which we drive on weekends or errands. We may have to replace the Audi depending on what happens with the 3.0L cars thanks to Dieselgate.

My wife has a 2009 Town and Country. But since she usually doesn't have many places to go (homeschooling two kids) I usually drive it as the daily driver as 20mpg is a little better than the 10mpg of the 350 on my 20 mile commute. She just drives the 350 if she needs to go to town. She loves driving it, as do I, just hates parking it since it's long and has the turning radius of an oil tanker.
