new car

if you were going to get any new car under 20,000 what car would you get?

if you were going to get a sports car for under 30,000 what car would you get?

this car would be mostly for every day driving and maybe a little fun on the weekend. i'm looking for new not used. also not really looking for a truck/suv. just trying to get some opinions, also please give a reason for what car you would get. thanks.

Under 20, I'd find a used SVTF.

Under 30, I'd grab a new Mustang GT, Or see if I could find an 03 Cobra, slightly used. I've seen Cobras go new for 32000 at the dealerships here, so I could possibly swing that.

For 20K I'd probably try to get a Mustang GT, you can walk out the door with a price right around there if you bargin alot. The 05's are suppose to start at under 20K. If I couldn't get a good deal on one I'd probably get a Mazda3 or a SVT Focus with out all the options the dealers hack on. You can get one reasonably loaded but not fully loaded like the ones I see on the lots.

A 30K sports car... RX-8, G35 sedan, The Mazdaspeed Miata, maybe a left over 2003 S2000 if you could find one on a dealer lot.
