That's fine, nobody in my town did them anyway. The 4 door version became something all the soccer moms drove.


When I get another one I want to go all out and get the Rubicon, put a rhino lining on the interior and exterior, and put a winch on it.

I like the CC's. They look like a toned down version of a Mercedes CLS class.

Slow and aren't diesel so they don't get near the mileage of the Jetta and Passat

After reading the OP, the new Accord coupes are nice, reliable, and fast. The back seat just sucks dick to sit in. Get the big motor(280hp) and you won't be sorry.

You could stick with Jeep and go with an SRT-8 grand cherokee to get the "sporty" factor

For a cheap car the Genesis isn't bad. I kinda like the Veloster too, I've almost talked myself into getting a little mini car for all the driving I'll be doing in 2013.

lolwut.

That one sentence alone calls your credibility into serious question. Unless your F250 is capable of running mid to high 12's in the 1/4, then you are lying.

ETA: And Toyota didn't put a "weak" motor in the FR-S to gauge interest in the market. The FR-S is a very lightweight car that was designed more for it's handling than it's straight line performance. It was built to be an affordable, fun to drive car aimed at a younger market and at the autocross niche.

ETA2: OP, I wouldn't take Hammertime's advice very seriously...unless you're looking for mpg's. He's been going on and on about power and which cars are fast, yet he's trying to talk you into the biggest turd in the VW lineup (the tdi). I think the tdi VW's are great cars...mainly if you don't mind sacrificing some performance to gain some mpgs.

Who owns the house? Who is paying for the vehicle? Who pays for the insurance? Who's name is going to be on the title? Who's responsible for the loan?

So much wrong here not sure where to start.

When people ask me about small cars now, I always respond with a Jetta or Passat TDI. Probably best cars for the money on the market right now, an get over 40mpg. My uncle has a friend who has a Jetta TDI and she consistently gets over 50mpg


I have thought about getting one as my next car for the gas mileage and room. However I am having trouble with you suggesting the TDI as being "sporty." Keep in mind that I currently drive a 2007 civic si, and I am used to a certain level of driving experience.

I have known 3 guys who did this. Each one wound up with an unexpected extra car note.

This is what I currently drive. At 200 HP it isn't a burner by any means, but the gearing makes it very fun to drive. It also gets around 30 mpg, BUT requires premium fuel.
