I'm only 25 (and still a student), so keep in mind that I'll own many more :)
1. (2001-2002) 1990 Ford Escort GT
2. (2003-2004) 1990 Toyota Corolla SR5
3. (2004-Present) 2002 VW GTI 1.8T
4. (2011-??) 2011 Jetta v. 2012 Focus --?
**none of the pictured cars are actually my photos...**
Had 3 accidents with the Escort GT within 18 months... (1) Deer, (2) Old guy pulled out in front of me (3) swerved to avoid a groundhog and hit an embankment...giving my first and only Ford an untimely death).
Favorite car all-around was the Escort GT, but I love my GTI. Haven't been impressed with all the little crap on it breaking, but unlike my Corolla, it's never left me on the side of the road (just knocked-on-wood).
I really like the look of the new focus and will be pitting it against the Jetta for what car I drive next.
Trying to decide what car to get, and not getting much help over on the Vortex.
What do you guys think?
