New car

If you had good luck w/ the Honda, consider another one. Can't beat them. Note: most, if not all the Hondas for sale here are made here. The Subaru is a cool car. If I lived in a place where it snowed, I would consider one. That said, I really don't have an eye for cars anymore. The bikes and Chevy trucks haul me around.

BMW MZ4...just rolled out this spring, lots of bang for the bucks, 0-60 in the high 4's, and never thought I'd say this, but it's as much fun as my bikes.

WRX is a good choice. Versatile, dependable, fun!

if I get another car ever the short list is: mini Cooper, WRX, VW TDI (newer version soon?)

Just bought a Toyota Prius Hybrid.

It's an odd looking thing that gets about 60 mpg when using fuel, and a zillion miles on electricity, silently and pollution free!

The S is fast and eats tires and gas like wild.
The Prius, an alter ego to the S makes up for all that gluttony!

2005 Dodge Magnum with a Hemi. Love it! Beware though, I only get about 16MPG combined City \ Highway.

That Prius pollutes more than my F150 gas pickup. It just does it all in another location off vehicle.

It's easy to tell you what kind of car 4 wheel car we drive but what good is that? Much harder to make a recommendation as to what you may want to purchase and drive next. Just too many unknown personal variables.

If I was wealthy and looking for a new car, I'd be considering one of these and saving the gas for my motorcycle habit:
