I'm thinking about buying a new car. I wanna pay cash, so the price range for said automobile has to be pretty reasonable.
my wish list includes a Mini Cooper Super Sport or Audi A5 or an Infiniti or a Lexus. these cars are not within my price range. I don't think I can even consider a Hyundai Sonata (2011's are beautiful!)
I need to keep in mind maintenance costs, gas mileage, standard vs manual transmission, foreign vs American manufacturing...blah, blah, blah.
I dream of power and performance, kickdown linkage and cornering ability, NOS, slicks, and alcohol fuel (just kidding, where would I store a funny car?!). if I were able to buy an Audi I'd probably have to budget for speeding tickets, heheheheh!!!
after a little research, here's my first list of test drives...
Kia Soul - too boxy???
Honda Fit - not sure I want a car with such a big butt!
Honda Civic Coupe - ooooohhhhhh! way more sporty!
Hyundai Elantra Touring - maybe with the roof racks!!!
does the Soul come with the hamsters? if I get a Kia Sorento, do I get a robot and a life sized sock monkey with a sense of fun?!
I'm not sure I'm ready to give up Good Little Car, he's only 13 years old!!! boo!!!
decisions, decisions!!! : .)
