      Aren't Fiats crazy cheap cuz no one wants to buy them? Or are they so ghey, that's the reason no one wants to buy them?

      I know you aren't cool enough to rock a wagon, so I'm just tossing out idears.

      What are you talking about? Jenny from the block rocks one.

      I like the 500 but honestly I would rather get a golf for my money. If I am going with a car that is that small on the inside I would get a mini.

      The 500 has a bad rep because of uncomfortable too-flat seats, basically useless back seats, lazy steering, and worse-than-expected fuel consumption.

      New, as in 0 miles, brand new, or just a new-to-you car?

      If NEW-new.... Mini

      If new-to-YOU... Mike's GMC

      Probably. I'm a casual Star Trek fan... not quite a Trekkie, so I'm not sure.

      Heck yeah, they were called The Borg!

      One of the main characters from The Borg was 7 of 9.



      She reinforced puberty for me!

      I was allowed to watch TV AFTER I did my homework and tennis practice...so StarTrek The Next Generation was the TV that was on!

      I'm a slightly above-average STNG fan and some of Startrek Voyager (see 7 of 9 )

      I was gonna get a mini when I got my GTI, glad I got my GTI. And yes, new as in 0 miles. As I would love Mike's GMC, I need a realiable daily.

      I know you aren't cool enough to rock a wagon, so I'm just tossing out idears.
      Ouch I want a wagon, but what kind of wagon?


      The car has to be big dog friendly and well, I'm getting old quick, this will be a "family" car at some point. Time to plan ahead.

      Mazdaspeed3. The rear area is big for how small the car is. It's one of the only compact car interiors I've ever felt is roomy and I'm a fan of big cars. IIRC, the MSRP is right at $24k and they're quick little cars.

      I've been thinking about that... but it seems only the base model comes with a manual transmission. I want some fancy stuff, but with the manual. I got some time to shop around though. Might explore non-VW options.

      Also, if you do get the Veloster, make sure it is a turbo model as the non-turbo are really slow.

      Guy I sit next to just bought an Outback for his wife and new baby. Nice car.

      Another guy at work just got the new Impreza wagon, interiors are much better than they were a few years ago.

      They also ditched that clunky 4spd auto for a CVT that isn't too bad.
