Pick a car!

Pick one of these. As Focus owners, pretend you are ready to purchase a new car and want to take a step up to something a tad nicer (although the Focus is a joy to own).

Just finding some good deals on these three used. Not all that fancy no, but I just wanted something nicer and a little more features than my 2000 Focus. I was thinking maybe the Accord coupe or even a Altima coupe if I find one I like. The RX-8 is just for fun, but I'm not sure I'd like to be taking care of it...

Something a tad nicer.....

new Accord Coupe....6 speed.

Subaru WRX 05 or higher.

Lexus IS

Nissa 350Z

Wait another year and get the new Euro Ford Focus

Mazda Speed3 or Speed6.

Personally I would go for the Accord or 350Z. Both fast and really comfortable to drive.

I like the RX-8 personally. I love Rotatory engines, they're smooth and rev like a mother. I know they're not that practical, but if it's for fun, I'd go with the RX-8.

But no matter what you do, DON'T GET A FRIGGING NISSAN!!! I mean, I love the 90's nissans, but that CVT trans. is so annoying and the car as a whole is way overpriced.

I'd go with an Civic SI if I had to get a Honda. The Accords are nice, but only the V-6 would do it for me. Just my opinion.

Happy Tuning,
Daniel

Thanks so much for all the advice!! I do like Subarus too, so maybe I should look into the WRX. I do need a backseat and the 350z is a two seater right? I was going to wait for the Euro Focus, but I think I'm going used and I will more than likely need a new car sooner than that (100k+ miles on the Focus now).

I'm going to get an auto tranny, so that will probably change a lot of everyone's opinions (on the cars and of me!)...
