After 8 years and over 123k miles, the old
Subaru Forester needed significant repairs.
Needed a roomy SUV, not a subcompact.
Found the Chevy Captiva at Hertz car sales; 33k.After 36K, car would lose power for no reason; check engine light came on. While waiting for appt. with Chevy dealer, car then stalled while idling-had to have it towed.Needed oxygen sensor and fuel injector-no longer covered by warranty.Ran sluggish after repairs.Took to mechanic friend - changed transmission + brake fluid.Found transmission fluid to be black, needed new cap; found a worn cracked bolt to shock absorber. Don't know what else he did, but it runs like silk now. (chevy did suggest changing fluids at time)

I wasn't even looking for this car, but it fulfills all my needs, without too much technology.
I can use E-85 gas in Iowa.
It has Bluetooth and I am totally Captivated by it :-)
Ask me again in a year.
