well im getting a new car and i have a few ideas on what i want but i also want to hear some more suggestions.
requirements

somewhere between 15-20k

good gas mileage

no SUV or pickup

big trunk to fit a box :naughty:

would like it to be a hatch so i dont have a trunk that traps bass

so far im thinking either an rsx or a mazda 3 hatch. what do you guys think?

Both nice choices. I really like the new Civic Si, don't know if it's in the price range though. Did you consider SRT-4's? Also a good choice.

wow all i would want is to drive a stick......u must not be a man??

lol unless u just drive in alot ( i mean alot) of traffic, it might get annoying, but once u get used to it its no big deal, driving stick is easy as hell

i know i know ill admit im soft :furious: lol. but i cant imagine having to wake up early in the morning and have to go through traffic and worry about shifting every 2 seconds. i want automatic so i can play with my h/u rather then shifting lol

Randy Savage

I'm not all that great at driving sticks, but I pull em in the shop all the time...so I am capable...but don't see myself driving a stick anytime soon...maybe when I'm older and have a nice Sunday driver I'll get one...:)

What about a TSX? Little over your budget, but a sweet car IMO. Know someone with one on 19"s and it looks awesome.

Can get an '04 with ~30k for like 23ish.

im pretty sure the 05 and 06 headlights already come with black housings. then i would just tint the OEM tail lights n im good to go

Just learn to drive stick. It is like an automatic after a while. Hell I dont even pay attention to when I shift anymore. It just is that normal and I still play with my headunit, switching out cds, talking on hands free and jacking off. Really isnt that hard mate.

06 Si or 06 Gti FTW!

I love the Saab 9-5T in a six speed. It's not a lot of power, 220 iirc, but the quality of the car is top notch, it's extremely luxurious(!), and has some upgrade options. A three year old saab with ~40k miles is about 16k near cleveland (a two.5 hour drive I took to drive one and got there in a bout an 1.25 hours. Very nice cars.

The gtis are also cool. The 1.8t is more cost effective to mod (more pwr/money) but the vr6 is just awesome. The 1.8t is to the point where any idiot can upgrade it anymore too.

WRX. Screw the hatch. Dont get a car for a system, get a car for a car, and then add the system.

Hmm....SUPRA? That's probably one of the few Japanese imports I would own.



By the way...I dont know if you dont know how to drive a stick or if you're just lazy....but if you dont know how I highly suggest you learn. You havent driven until you'vedriven a stick....especially in a car with good power.

Dont worry about shifting every two seconds....it becomes second nature and before long you dont even realise what you're doing you just do it.

For 20k? Cobalt SS or Mazda3 hatch. Those are my only 2 cars I'd get tho. Cobalt SS because its **** as ****, has a bad *** ecotec engine, supercharged stock, and with some mods, can blow the doors off its big brother, the corvette.


Mazda3, well. Just because. LOL.

it's a ghetto hatch tough lol. it's not a full out hatch but it's like the malibu maxx or whatever it was called when they did that.
