      Get another Volvo wagon, but this time with a V8/6MT swap. Fun and practical, and you could actually go on a date in it.

      Seems to me like natural result of economy cars getting taller and more SUV-like. I wonder how much higher the COG on a new Fit is compared to a 1988 Civic.

      My '99 Neon and '00 Protege were misunderstood by people who thought they were just boring economy cars. My old e30 was hated on by my family who thought it must be really expensive to fix, when in...

      I was born in '86, but even I had one of these as a kid.

      Mk VI 2.5 cars get much better fuel economy than your Rabbit, and mid-30's on the highway is common. EPA is 33 hwy, which we all know is easy to beat. My Volvo is rated 22 hwy and easily get 25+.

      Yet hundreds of pounds heaver than a Camry or Accord from that era.

      Both are solid, but the Lexus will ride better while the Infiniti will be a little sportier. As others have said, I would also expand the search to include Maximas and Camrys, unless they're really...

      I probably would sell my 740 for the right price, but it is the kind of car I could see myself keeping for a very long time. Maybe after 5 years or so swap in an LS/T-56 and keep it around for...

      I see more Legacys than Fusions, and I never see 200s. But that may be location specific.

      Another factor is driving an old Volvo wagon gets you laid in Seattle, and you can even complete the act in the vehicle with the seats folded down. Although a Bush Sr. era Subaru wagon probably has...
    15. Poll: Boring TFL Question: The Devil You Know or the Devil You Don't

      So my DD for the past year has been a '91 Volvo 740 wagon, non turbo, automatic, only 110k on it. I love it with the exception of being an automatic and being somewhat expensive maintenance wise. The...

      I voted e36... 318ti is a lot like a Miata hatchback. I would also be looking at Integras and Preludes. Also, Car and Driver called the 99-03 Protege a 4 door Miata. You can scoff if you want but...

      Lexus LS all the way, even if you have to go a bit older. Acura RL could be a contender too, but it won't be as comfortable as the LS.

      Eh, the Accord was 4 cyl only and much smaller and the Camry didn't look as good. The Taurus was a close match, but didn't have as nice of an interior IMO. My parents Premier, which wasn't even top...
