Maybe you could get a slightly used Cadillac ATS with a 2.0 Turbocharged 272 hp.


But its definitely cooler for your kid to get picked up in the Camaro from school in the near future

I like those Caddys too, but of course as soon as I start looking I immediately end up at the CTS-V and then anything else just seems worthless lol

And yeah, it is much cooler to be in the Camaro. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy watching the other dads in Malibus and Town and Country's look at my Camaro in the parking lot of the daycare haha. Really hoping to hang onto decent vehicles. I've managed to keep a motorcycle and Camaro alive so far!

I started a job 6 months ago that is a 150 mile round trip to work. The fuel costs got me thinking the same thing, and I started looking around. I don't have any kiddos, and none are planned - ever- but between fuel, tires, and just sheer mileage I was thinking I needed a change.

The only thing that came close to meeting all the wickets was a new Focus ST, you might want to check that car out.

In the end, I decided I like the camaro way too much to part with. I've got snow tires and a shell card LOL, and I'm just going to keep driving the camaro.

I've told my wife if I had to get rid of my 2SS/RS for some reason the most likely replacement would be a Taurus SHO. More room than a Subaru, more power too.

lol people suggesting the Evo.

If people hate on the Camaro for having a cheap interior, I have horrible news for you buying that rice.

Having children is a choice you make. Sacrifices and benefits come with it. My brother has his second on the way and is thinking of trading his Sierra for a used Traverse. And his wife will most likely trade her Accord Hybrid for a Honda minivan, whatever that's called. But they are planning four kids, so all that is a little necessary.

Nahh, get some better style. Get a used Legacy 2.5GT Limited. Same basic motor and tranny, a little more room, more comfort, blistain shocks, and less ricy.
