Mazda hatch has more room and handles well from what I've experienced. A friend of mine has had one for a long time and hasn't had any problems with it. I don't know anyone with a rabbit, but they are similar to the GTI and it has less room the a mazda that's for sure.

Hey guys! Need some helping deciding on a new car. I've pretty much narrowed it down to an Acura rsx, or a Mazda 3 hatch (first gen.) I was also considering a Volvo s60 since my ex has one, and I loved driving it. I think I'd still rather have the 3 or rsx though. Most of my driving is just commuting to class and work. I don't really care which one is better for modifying, racing, etc. All I really want is a nice looking, good, reliable car that's good on gas, comfortable, and relatively cheap maintenance. What are your thoughts? Anybody own an rsx or Mazda 3? I've been driving an '83 300D turbo diesel with no heat the past 4 years, so anything younger than 15 years feels like luxury to me lol. Thanks in advance!

Old toyota pickup? I assume they could tow two jet ski's but I could be wrong on that. Of course it's going to have a ton of miles but I hear they're pretty indestructible. Not even close to $12,000 although you find one in good shape it's probably still a decent sum for the year. If it has that towing ability it's going to be slow as balls though, I don't think they had much power.

Wolfbiker, there's over 60 car models that fit your requirements. Most any new cars are pretty reliable and cheap to maintain assuming you're doing some of the basic repairs. maybe provide a little more info on what you like.

If you want an awesome looking, low maintenance, and super fun to drive go with the 370Z. My dad had a 350Z it was a blast to drive and you could not break it loose even on sharp turns, it sticks to the road. Also Highly modifiable.

If you want something different go with the STI. They have changed a lot over the years but still are highly modified. A friend of mine swears by Subaru. He has a 2006 STI with a lot of time and $ invested and it is very fast but , with the same time and $ into a 370Z you can have a 600 Horsepower reliable turbo or supercharged vehicle. Either way two awesome choices. BTW I sell cars and drive different cars all day. Hope this helps

WRX or BMW

The WRX will be more fun to drive and also cheaper to maintain. A friend of mine has owned 8 different Subaru's over the years and always had great experiences. Plus the WRX can be modified a lot easier. BMW's are more expensive to maintain and to insure. BMW is way more luxury, if you want luxury go for the BMW. Both are great choices. If you do buy the BMW , do yourself a favor and get a comprehensive warranty. You will not regret it.

WRX!

Carmax is taking my civic si for almost what I owe on my lease so I am in the market for a new ride. I owned a 2004 wrx in the past and I am seriously considering another, newer one; however, I am open to suggestions.

Wants in order of importance:
Reliability
4 doors
Resale value
<55k miles
Fun to drive
AWD

I would rather not put anything down and finance no more than 18k; want to buy, not lease again. Any suggestions?

Saab 9-2x (aka subaru wrx), they have a lower pricepoint than the wrxs because no one knows they are a wrx with different body panels and a few other random bits

you could go german, bmw 335xi/535xi, audi S4, but you'd be close to the max of your budget.

Looking for new ride since my 09 corolla leaves a lot to yearn and it starting to give me problems. Likewise I'm moving up north so really looking for something that will do better than most in icy/snowy conditions.

Budget is $20k (stretch is $25k as my trade in is set at least at $5k currently)
-All wheel or 4WD preferred.
-Over 200hp(need something with some pep)
-Won't be a nightmare to repair if something goes wrong
-New or under 30k

So far, I've found these:

1) http://www.brandonmitsubishi.com/use...2V6FV6DU002493

2) http://www.carmax.com/enus/view-car/default.html?id=10313534&AVi=21&No=0&Rp=R&D=50&N=7 88&sM=NA-20000&Us=14&Q=242245f2-1fd9-47f3-af1a-90cdf70dd32a&Ep=search:results:results%20page&zip= 32822&AZ=33613

3) http://www.mastrosubaru.com/used/Sub...1eeebb9beb.htm

These are on the used front. On the new I've also looked at the new Golf GTI and the 2.5L Mazda 3. However, both are FWD. Any one any bad experiences in heavy rain or icy conditions with either of these cars? Likewise, anyone have any experience the GTI being a nightmare to maintain and repair?


Thanks for any advice.
