Another HARD question, If you couldnt drive AMERICAN

If you HAD to buy a new car(CANNOT BE AMERICAN and you cant keep your old car) what would you drive?

I would still rock the Toyota (just not a highlander...) or a Mercedes

EDIT: SORRY I forgot Nissan and Volvo... my bad

I guess the 'Other' category is huge.

But I think I'll go with a old Yugo.

Mazda, no question about it. I drove my mom's new Mazda3 and holy cow, it blew me away. I previously considered front wheel drive to be wrong wheel drive for a performance car, but that car showed me that it is possible to make FWD with good steering feel. In fact the new RX-8, if it comes out as rumored and soon, might win out over the Camaro anyway (but just a might, because the Camaro still warms my heart over and is the best looking affordable car out there.)

Aston Martin for sure. BMW is my choice, but I had to be different.
