    Cool Hate to be such a noob but.....car suggestions...

    Okay....my '93 300ZX is just getting tired...too much driving to from school, work, girlfriend, etc. I was hoping to wait until I'm done with school, but I just had to spend $1100 fixing some suspension problems and I 1) can't afford to lose my car to the shop for more than a day again and 2) don't want to spend all that money again in case something goes wrong. It's worked wonderfully for the 6 years I've owned it (only had some suspension problems and replaced radiator) but I can tell it's time to get something new.

    So!!!

    I'd like to keep it under $24k...options so far:

    2006 Mazda 3 (my parents and my brother have one...excellent car for the money and I've driven it a lot already)
    2006 Civic Si (haven't seen one in person, I like the engine, not sure about the styling)
    2006 Sentra SE-R (not so sure about the styling)

    What else is out there??? Ford Focus just has a far too weak engine. Also, which of these cars would be easiest for a CarPC installation?

    I'm planning to go to the DC Auto Show this weekend to look around...I wish I could afford a WRX because I like it and because there's that in-dash kit for it.. lol

    the mazda 3 is nice. if you are still wanting sporty and you are not so concerned about storage etc... i would get a pontiac solstice. they are awesome. i have done a test drive and i loved it.

    Ok, So I assume the 300ZX is paid for. . . You are willing to spend 24k on a new car but not 1-2k to fix the one you've got? Id avoid debt any day. But what the hell, The RSX Type S is Niiiiiice. My friend Amanda traded her older model vette for one. She loves it, drives well, handels well, and overall an excellent car! You might look at BMW 5 series, although I have no clue on actual price. Or. . . VW GTI?? Wish I had 25k to throw at a new car. GL to you. Look forward to seeing other replys too.
    If only everthing in life would do what I WANTED it to, rather than what it was SUPPOSED to do.

    For 24K (if that) you can get a NICE Scion tC supercharged 2.4L I4 pushing 200HP and 190something lbs of torque... and it's a Toyota so you know you are not buying a crappy brand of a car...plus all the extras it comes with it.. the Mazda/Honda/Nissan can only dream about at that price range

    The base car is 16000... you get a supercharger that's another 3500 or so... that's 19500... and if you want to get any extras that would be more.. but if you get a just a base model and a SC.. out the door it shouldn't be more than 22K

    Does it have to be new? Slightly used Lexus vehicles cost around your price. And just do regular maintenenece and you should be fine. The IS or the GS would suit you nicely IMO.

    Gallants have always been reliable as far as I've seen too...
