Whats your opinion?

ok this week was talking to my mother-in-law and she was telling me that she is selling her 1988 nissian 300zx. Talked to my wife about getting it to mess around with since im kinda leary about doing to much to my 05. (dont want warranty issues with ford). She told me that i needed to wait that she had something planned for xmas. to make a long story short, she is trading in her 2000 626, to get me a new car. Dont really know what i should get. i kinda want like and 04 svt, but then she said that she really doesnt want to buy a used car if she didnt have to. ok now we go into new cars. I like the 06 civic si, but never had a honda i only have drove fords since i started buying cars. so any ideas on what i should get. oh and as for my 05 she will be taking care of her so no matter what this forum will be a help.

I think the Civic SI would be the most fun to drive out of the cars along with the most reliable. I'm not loyal to one car marque, so I'll buy what suits my personal taste best. Just go out and drive all of the above cars, and I'm sure you'll find something that you feel is worth while.

Just a little side note, but the Honda will retain its value better than any of the other cars.

Out of what you listed I vote Civic SI. Very sharp looking car and legendary Honda performance & reliability.

I do however have to add my 2 cents about the Mazda 3 series. Killer total package car that I think will better the SI once the aftermarket picks up for it or if a Mazda Speed 3 comes out
