      This thread is for sharing your reasons for not getting a certain brand, because of some observance (real or otherwise).

      I'll start:

      I would get a Subaru, but for some reason the doors feel and slam "tinny". Never mind that I know they have great crash ratings, and all wheel drive would be very beneficial to me; whenever I go to the showroom all it takes is for me to sit in the driver's seat and reach for the door to close, and it's all over for me.

      I feel the exact same about some of their older stuff, but it seems like some of the newer cars are a little more solid feeling.

      I would get a 335i, but they're expensive and they break a lot.

      I'd get a BMW, but the only car of theirs I'd want, the new 5-series Touring with a diesel engine is not sold here.

      Mazda but they all seem to rust up within 4-5 years (compact class anyway the midsizes arent as bad for some reason).

      I would love to get a Honda, but for some reason they keep **** blocking me when it comes to features and manual transmissions.

      For Christ's sake - I can get a manual transmission Hyundai Elantra GT with leather, navigation, panoramic sunroof, and proximity keyless entry/push-button start....but that in a Honda Civic....no.

      I'd love to get an Audi. Any Audi, except for the fact that they STILL mount their engines so far forward. The driving dynamics just don't sit right with me, but I love the styling, the fit & finish, and the Quattro system.

      Hyundai / Kia: I would have bought one had they offered a spare tire kit option.

      All im saying is .. That if you don't want somthing that feels like Tin can then you almost have to suck up the price of the car and just buy German and call it a day. . If you don't care about ride /quality then cars like honda,toyota,hyundai are fine . The only other car i have got into that don't feel like this is a the caddy CTS new ones but there goes your price up again. Subaru you can beat the crap out of them and they last for ever. Just got to think about $/Quality

      I'd buy a Korean car but only if it played Gangham style on infinite loop.
