and I have no idea what should be involved in the equation here.
What the hell is mileage, why the hell would I want an SUV over a Sedan?
What the hell even qualifies as a Sedan?!
So I came in here and made this thread to choose between a Hyundai Sonata and Tucson.
Also because I'm too bored to do anything else.

you don't even know what mileage is? :\

i have a qeustion about the fourth option

gas mileage is how much you can drive the car without needing to refill it with gas. So probably a good thing in your case. Although, I honestly didn't think people really owned cars much in South-east asia. Sedan, basically your standard 4 door car. SUV stands for Sport Utility Vehicle, basically you'd want it if you plan on carrying more people/stuff, or driving off road a bit or something.
I'm surprised you can not know these things and be able to drive a car, haha

In his defense, i wouldn't know either because my native language's names for all these things are words that sound and write kinda different.

okay but, if he knows what it is in Malaysian then....oh whatever

Malaysia and Singapore have a higher number of cars and drivers than most places, since the place is a lot more driver-friendly than other countries like China and Hong Kong, where they're either experiencing high costs, a public transportation system that makes a driver's license redundant, or too little parking space.
@MIRAK: FUCK. Nah, Malaysia uses English as a main language for most things here such as maps, and reading material. I was vaguely aware what mileage is, but I actually assumed it was how much distance you could get before the car died out. Guess I was wrong.
@Riz: Malay, malaysian is a nationality.

Well, mileage period is just how many miles the car has on it.

"Mileage" depends on context. In a used car, it's how far it's been driven. Gas mileage is how far the car can drive under typical conditions using a gallon of gas (usually expressed in miles per gallon or a metric equivalent like km per liter). Gas mileage is usually better on highways than in cities, and it depends on driving style and other factors, so your mileage may vary.
This is a different consideration from how far the car can go on a full tank of gas because different vehicles have different sizes of tank. Smaller vehicles usually have better mileage and smaller tanks, while larger vehicles usually have worse mileage and bigger tanks.
A sedan is a generic car. Technically, it's a passenger car with three compartments: one in the front (usually for the engine), one in the middle for passengers, and one in the back (usually for cargo). Most cars are sedans, and other kinds are usually called by their type, like station wagons or hatchbacks.
Compared to sedans, SUVs are usually more powerful, with better offroad capability and more passenger/cargo space. They are usually bigger and heavier, which can make them safer in certain kinds of crashes, but their height makes them more vulnerable to rolling over. They usually have relatively poor gas mileage but large enough tanks for decent travel ranges. They are usually more expensive to buy, operate, and insure. Which is right for you depends on what you need in a vehicle.

@Tuor: That's it, I'm turning this into a voting page for cars once this is all over and done with.

What are you going to be using your car for? Are you just going to drive around or are you going out to do reacretion?
Fri Jan 18, 2013 12:38 pm

Fri Jan 18, 2013 1:39 pm

The car will probably be used for driving around and car stuff, like all cars do.
Problem is, I can't get over deciding between a sleek car suited for college, or a friggin' bulldozer SUV for carrying all the shit I constantly accumulate.
That, and because the Sonata has Bluetooth.
And I hate the local radio.
I am also all down with the idea of FUCK recreation, depending on what it even means here.
Sat Jan 19, 2013 4:35 am
Recreation stuff would be like outdoorsy things, like camping or sports and whatnot. Honestly, I imagine the Sonata would be enough for what you seem to need to do
Sat Jan 19, 2013 7:54 am
First thing you should ask yourself should be: can you afford the gas and the insurance costs of a big car? If no, go for a smaller and more energy efficient one.
My car doesn't have much room for stuff in it. But it does it's job well. Though to be fair now that it's -10 degrees outside it's locked up on the parking lot and the car battery is right here at home with me, but you get the point. It's all about what you can afford and what you want it to do. Do keep in mind that you will probably be stuck with your choice for a while (unless you or your parents are wealthy), so do consider the long term issues.
