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.

How about Nissan and the other make are "other" along with "others"?



I'll settle with a 2004-5 WRXSTi or REXSTi...

Really? The 8 IMO is much stronger and the 9 is the ulitimate IMO. Why your preference to the 7, I am curious. I have had an 8 and a 9, if I was to go back to my old ways and went to imports again, If I couldn't get and 8 or a 9 I would get the eclipse gsx. But I have changed my ways and seen the light. I will have a camaro!!
That being said! Never disrespect the EVO, you might get hurt.

I voted for a British brand, EVEN THOUGH my favorite other car besides the American ones I like is the BMW Z4 coupe... I just couldn't live with the stigma of being Ye Olde BMW owner. At least a British brand isn't as "Hey, me too!" Especially a Jag.

That's why I chose them. But older Volvos are funner by nature.
