Okay i need ya help...this is killing me.

okay im soon going to buy a new car. and well my mazda protege isn't cutting for me anymore. its good in gas. but its just old ( 1999 ) runs hard n all but slow and not my kind of car. and so recently i have had my eye on certain cars...one being the famous 2010 Camaro...but the sad part is that if i were to get a camaro it would be a v6 =( and Ls...=(...another choice of car that got my eye has been the 2010 Mazdaspeed 3...and the rest of the cars are...Civic Si , Dodge Charger?

i mean they are all in the price range and all. but im really like the speed. but the camaro just calls me...

the V6 is nothing to be disappointed in, and I'd take it over any of the rest of the cars in your list

Well, the speed3 is the best performer stock, and it will actually hold 4 normal sized adults, with a large trunk.
The camaro is sexy and has a v6 purr.
Which one do you want?

Bugatti. Veyron. Do it.

Jay Kay, of course. Dude, the Camaro has easily the most bang for buck. And everyone- even SS buyers, are modding and improving their cars. A few small mods, and your LS will be just as bad as any Camaro on the road, and a helluva lot badder than a Civic, or a Mazda, or any of those cars...

Do it.

What's the price range? If you can afford a V6 camaro I'd honestly tell you to try the best you can to be patient and save a bit more to get the SS. Beyond that, there are a large number of cars at the MS3 pricepoint that I'd consider far before the Civic SI although I do like some Chargers. Have you looked around on autotrader? People are getting steals right now for 1-2 year old basically new vehicles.

if performance is a factor, don't consider the Charger/Challenger or the Civic SI. And the Civic's better city mileage is offset by the requirement for premium gas. Mazdaspeed3 is the fastest of the bunch, and is as thirsty as the big Dodge. It will have more space, but harsher ride. The interior may be nicer, but there is no comparison for the exterior.

Go for the Camaro. It's a cool car with plenty of power. The best looking car to come along in decades. The rest are just basic transportation.

...that is, if you can handle driving a cool car.

i actually like the mazdaspeed3. the performance is nice and the cargo is good. and its an ugly car but i like it because it looks different. it looks silly to me. so it sticks out and is kinda like my personality. but you could never go wrong with any gen camaro. lol

And what V6 engine is in the cars that are sitting on dealership lots right now, or the ones that you can order from the factory? I ask because the OP is asking to replace his car 'soon' and to me, over half a year away doesn't sound very soon.

You say that the Camaro is calling you? GO FOR IT!! You wont be dissapointed,my friend! The new Camaro with the V-6 and 304h.p. is no slouch, plus you will be getting a car thats is capable of getting 29mpg!!!!! And look great doing it! Sounds to me thats a win-win proposition. You will LOVE this car!.
