Ok well, as soon as I sell my truckin a month or so I'll be in the market for a car. I want something that can hit at least 23-25 mpg, is around $26k and still fast. I would like 4 doors, because I don't want to lose the convenience.
I have several cars in mind...
Tier 1 (best options)
MS3 GT (cheap, fast, but not requires premium and averages about 22mpg)
GTI (up front they are pretty expensive for a audobahn package equipped ones and they have not the greatest reliability ratings)
Upcoming Lancer ralliart (not out yet, who knows...)
Tier 2 (good but something is holding them back.)
2007 G35 Sport sedan (this is awesome but i'd have to stretch to about $28k for a well equipped one)
Civic SI (no torque, but otherwise a great car)
Any ideas... help... advice... etc?
