    Anybody want to offer me some helpful advice? Or even the kind of advice one can usually expect around here?

    Just to be clear, I've got it down to a Ford Fusion or Chevy Malibu, both previous-generation CPO models.

    The car choices are pretty much set. I was wondering...

    A) Has anybody ever bought an off-lease car?

    B) Has anybody ever bought from Enterprise? They have a lot of cars that aren't former rentals that they get from auctions. They offer a 12/12 powertrain warranty, and I was wondering if it's any good.

    B) My credit union has some connection with Enterprise and gives deals if you buy from them. Anybody I know that has used it has been pleased.
