What we need is as much aftermarket support that they have for subies, audi's'...shit all of the over priced imports sold here for the current focus & fiesta platforms. Back in the early 2000's I liked the idea of buying a zx3 for 14k & modding it with another 10-15k & whooping some evo/sti a$$ for less money. AWD is for trucks or off road racing. On the street I grew up driving open diff. & 2WD cars & am a more skilled driver because of it even in Colorado winters.
I don't need training wheels.
(AWD,Traction control,Stability control,Launch assist,Autotrans,Paddle shifters). Got my driving skills driving front/rear wheel drive high performance cars on the street for the last 40 years.
