Help me compare a 2002 and 2006 Prius - both low mileage

Similar to this question, but I am looking at a 2002 and a 2006 Prius. Both have similarly low mileage, but the 2006 is listed at ~$5000 more than the 2002. I would prefer the larger interior space and the newer car, but am not sure it's worth it. What else should I consider? [more inside]

Putting many miles on a Mini

My partner owns a 2010 Mini Cooper S. He loves the car, but doesn't want to drop big bucks every time he needs an oil change. Are Minis so special that he can only go to the dealership or a specific import mechanic? Or can he venture to Valvoline? [more inside]

B&B/Hotel w/a Nice OUTDOOR Pool Near NYC?

We've got a nine-month-old who's never really been in a pool. We'd like to plan a short two or three day vacation built around playing with him in an *outdoor* pool somewhere that's within a three hour drive of NYC. Please recommend a hotel or bed and breakfast that's got a nice, baby-friendly pool. Before the baby, we stayed at resorts in Arizona and California that'd be perfect for this sort of thing, but we can't seem to find anything similar on the east coast. Thanks!

Head gasket compomrised?

I have a 2002 Honda Civic LX which periodically overheats. If I refill the radiator with coolant/water, it'll go another 150 miles before overheating again. In principal I could just keep the radiator filled up, and go this way for quite a while. I don't want to do that, but I want to figure out as much as I can before committing to any expensive repairs like replacing the head gasket. [more inside]
