      I would buy a Tiguan but it can't tow more than 2,000lb.

      I would buy Touareg TDI but I don't have that much money to spend.

      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.
      This is no longer an issue with Subaru now that they no longer do the frameless windows

      OP here. I disagree, while Subaru made it a bit better, this post was started because I just came back from the Subie dealer and felt this way.

      I would be more interested in BMWs except for their archetype their drivers follow in general is a massive turn off.

      I would be more interested in Ferraris except for that I think their more current cars aren't exactly what I'd exactly call pretty.

      I'd consider a German car, but people like 2.0TJett buy them.

      I'd buy a Kia except the entire package still isn't there, yet. Also, the suspension is firm and clunky and not great as a highway cruiser, yet the handling is pretty awful by today's standards.

      I'd buy a Hyundai except for the same reasons as above, and in addition, I don't like cars in which both the interior and exterior look like they were exposed to melting temperatures.

      I'd buy another Subaru when they get modern transmissions and reasonable mileage with a MT, and when the ergonomics again fit an average northern European.

      I'd buy a Civic or Prius -- except I can't live with interiors that attempt to mimic alien space ships.

      I'd buy an Audi, except the ones I would consider are not available with MT, and are also not available with a Diesel engine (in the latter case, for certain cars, I would consider AT)

      I'd buy another VW, except I already own two.

      Just wanna say: nice signature!

      OT: I wouldn't mind a MkVI GTI, but damn if I'm not afraid of VW's reputation of unreliability, as well as most dealers having an eff you attitude after the sale is done.

      It was a joke, he drives a Forester.

      I'd buy an older Honda, but I've sat in a few and just don't fit..

      I also want to add:

      Ford: I would have considered a Focus or Fiesta if they offered a three door hatch option.

      Chevrolet: I would have considered a Cruze had they offered a hatch or wagon option.

      Mini: If the reliability didn't suck so bad.

      I would buy another VAG product, but they don't see TDI + AWD as a viable option for the US Market ...

      /if they did, well ...

      I'd get a Nissan Maxima, except the CVT is a complete joke and the car needs a 6MT and DSG type options.

      I'd would get an Acura, if their design language didn't suck so much.

      I would buy another Volkswagen but there aren't anymore coilpacks left for replacement on this planet because my mk4 used them all.

      I would also buy a FC rx7 but apex seals scare me.

      I would buy a Mercedes C Class but they don't offer the sexy things in manual anymore..

      That, and the fact that the 2002 C320 my parents had spent a week in the shop every 5,000 miles and every electrical component on that vehicle failed and required a home refinance to fund the repair.

      I think proper sentence structure is a pre-requisite for a Benz, unless it's a 1988 190e and you wear the hood ornament around your neck.

      Sorry.
