Hey guys, some of you might remember me from the thread "Is a wrx right for me?". Anyways, i have decided that the wrx would be a bad first car, due to the insurance, and the overall power for a first time driver is probably too much. Even though i really want one, i have chosen to look at other cars. My plan is to enjoy this car for a few years till the insurance becomes more acceptable, then deciding if the wrx is a good fit.
So my question to you, even though it may be off-topic, is what is a good car for a "beginner" that is still a blast to drive, but more controlled. Also, it cant have a turbo (parents and insurance don't like). I thank you for any responses!
EDIT: it doesnt have to be a new car!
