Q: Car recommendations for a College bound kid?

asked by on

We are looking at purchasing a car for our daughter - we would like her to have this car for 6 years (or more). We are looking at a range of new vs. used. We have an 07 Audi A4 and it seems to be great (although it just reached 100K miles, which is when they say the $$$ happens).
We are looking at the following cars: Audi (A3 or A4) USED VW Golf (new or used) Mazda 3 (new or used) Mazda CX-3 (new or used)

Do you have any red flags we should be thinking about? Are there cars we should consider that we aren't already looking at? Thank you.
