My sister is looking for a replacement for her '02 Jetta. It was bought new, and minor issues are becoming too frequent so its time for something else. She wants another compact car, just not another VW due to crappy dealer service while the car was under warranty...
This time around she wants a hatchback. We are going to look at the Civic, Cruze, and Mazda3 on Monday. Any other '17 models worth looking at? Car will be kept long term, so resale is not important. Also my father and I will do maintenance and out of warranty repairs.
Bonus points if you can name the car in the background.
