Recommendations for a used car that's more spacious than a Honda Fit?

Because of a drunk driver totaling our perfectly functioning 2007 Honda Fit last weekend, we find ourselves in the market for another used car. Added wrinkle: I'm expecting a baby in early September and were thinking about maybe buying a somewhat more spacious car the next time round. [more inside]

Chevy Volt through the Drive Green with Mass Energy program?

I live in Boston and have never owned a car. I use Lyft/Zipcar/Turo/Enterprise a few times a month, and otherwise stick to public transit. But I'm very tempted by the Chevy Volt advertised through the Drive Green with Mass Energy program -- $115 to lease, no money down, or $16,500 to buy. Is this as good an idea as it seems? Snowflakes and fretting inside ... [more inside]

Where to spend a few hours with kids between Paris/CDG & Beaune?

I'm driving from CDG to slightly before Beaune and have some time to kill. Any suggestions for places that can accommodate jet-laggy 9-12 year olds and their grown ups? We gravitate toward open spaces, mild activity (lazy swimming, kayaking, etc.), local shops/groceries, small towns, cafés, maybe a nap spot, and the unusual. [more inside]

Cost of the toll troll?

I'm driving from Baltimore to southern Vermont. First time driving the northeast coast and all I hear about are tolls! Oddly, I have not really dealt with tolls in any of the places I've lived. If anyone has made a similar trip, how much money should I take with me for a round trip in tolls? Can I pay in credit card or just cash? Just quarters?? [more inside]

Renting a car seat/booster seat in the UK

We're renting a car in England soon and need a booster seat for the rental car. Google is surprisingly not turning up tons of options, and what I'm really looking for anyway are personal experiences with companies. We could pick up the seat at Heathrow if necessary -- and we won't be staying in central London, but in Kent. We really only need it for rides to/from the airport and for one longish drive on one of the days of our trip.

First-time international travelers' question

We, two Americans, will be taking a group trip to Israel this fall, our first time overseas. When we buy souvenir-type items, what do you experienced travelers recommend we use to pay for them: U.S. dollars, American credit card, Israeli shekels, or something else? My completely uninformed preference is credit card. The places we visit probably won't be very far off the beaten tourist path.

Can we squeeze in a vacation for everyone?

We haven't had a family vacation in years because it got harder to afford, fit it into the summer working schedules of 2 adults and 2 teens, and varied interests. Now summer is getting closer to the end (due to going back to college dates) and we still haven't planned anything. More inside. [more inside]

Greyhound from Corvallis to Salem Oregon

I need to travel from Corvallis to Salem. I've found a route that fits my needs, but I can't be late (I need to be there for a wedding). I've never used Greyhound: is there any likelihood that I might be two hours late?

How should I upgrade my bikeage for better haulage?

Now that our kid is getting big enough to ride in a bike seat, I realized I now need to figure out the bike situation. I need to get a new bike regardless to accommodate a rear seat - my current bikes have high top tubes and I can't mount them without kicking my leg over the back. The big question is should I get a longtail cargo bike or a regular bike with a mixte/step-through frame? This is for commuting around Berkeley/Oakland. [more inside]

YACBQ (Yet another car buying question)

I'm looking to buy my first new-to-me car that isn't a beater! It's quite exciting, but also overwhelming. There's a lot of information out there that it can feel a bit like drinking from the firehose, but I believe I've narrowed it down to a few different makes and models. I was hoping to get a gut check on both those selections as well as some of the prices that I'm seeing here in the Bay Area. [more inside]

Basic/beginner guide for car wiring? Specifically, relay related.

I drive a 2007 town and country limited (3.8). I've been getting under the hood myself with the help of youtube to check smaller things when my mechanic friends aren't able to help. We recently noticed that the fans don't come on unless hooked directly to the battery. The air has no refrigerant due to a leak that I'm also hoping to fix soon. I've changed the coolant temp sensor (no change). Changed the fuse (no change). Checked relay. This is where I'm stuck. I need a guide to wiring and don't know where to look or what's good for my situation. [more inside]
