The next thing to do is get an idea of maintenance costs on any car you're considering. Proper maintenance is especially important on a used car since it may not have a warranty to protect it if anything breaks down. People buy used vehicles as a way to save money but often overlook the cost of maintenance, which might end up pushing them beyond the limits of their budget. The car's owner's manual, which is often available online, will tell you what you need to know about maintenance services and intervals. A phone call to a dealership service department or a trusted independent repair shop will get you pricing information. You also can check resources such as RepairPal.
Infiniti hopes the new 2022 QX55 will remind people of the original FX35, but there isn’t much tying the two models together aside from a fastback roofline and the automaker’s endless highway logo. The QX55 is basically a QX50 with less interior room, Infiniti applying the same recipe to its compact crossover that BMW and Mercedes-Benz do to theirs (and now Audi, too). As is true of other SUV “coupes,” you’ll pay more for less with the Infiniti QX55.

Hard to believe the current Honda Civic design is six years old. It doesn’t look a day over two, mainly because of its wild styling that has aged remarkably well. Nevertheless, a redesigned 2022 Honda Civic is on the way, no doubt incorporating significant technological upgrades into its more conservative bodywork. Sedan and hatchback versions are on the way, and Honda says new versions of the sporty Si and performance-tuned Type R are part of the plan.
