Ok here is my situation. In the relatively near future depending on what goes on with finances i will be in the market for a new car as soon as a month or as late as late Summer..either way im currently searching and doing due diligence on what to get. I live in the North East(PA to be exact) and thus I will encounter all the elements. What I want is
1.something I can drive year around this will be a daily driver.
2. Something thats AWD for the weather in the winter.
3 Something thats realtively sporty and looks decent
4. Something that gets decent MPG(25+ MPG or better highway)
My searches and research so far have netted the following cars have made the cut:
USED cars first 2010-2012 models of the Charger R/T AWD , Infiniti G37 AWD, Taurus SHO , Cadillac CTS ,
These USED cars were eliminated for one reason or another(listed)
BMW 335 Xi (reliability,expense of parts) , Audi S4 (Reliability, expensive parts), Acura (while they have everything I want they are just NASTY looking IMO)
A New Subaru WRX
So a little about me..im 45 have a wife and kid(14) Its mostly going to be going back and forth to work car. From time to time to save gas $$ we take it on a longer trip as my wives SUV gets garbage MPG. Not a lot but now and then. back in 1992 I had a 1991 Taurus SHO...its the most fun and best car I ever owned..It was(for the time) fast, looked good and I just had fun driving it..ive owned nothing ive been remotely fond of since 1994 when I got rid of it. Everything since then has just been borign old cars that are simply get from A to B stuff(currently a Hyundai Sonata) ZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz.... Im wanting to get back into something I really enjoy owning and is a fun car again..the ones ive picked out I like both the styling and performance of.
So what to do
Get a brand spanking new(im assuming as of the late date im buying it will be a 2015 not a older 2014..they are almost all gone) 2015 WRX with the full factory warranty or a used car above and add on a extended warranty(I wont own a car without a warranty)..note I actually like the NEW Sedan WRX look MORE/BETTER than the 2014...BUT I like the 2014 hatch more but I doubt by may/june there will be any hatches left so I am going 2015 coupe for sake of argument...
So New 2015 WRX or used SHO,R/T,CTS,G37 AWD? and why???
