It's time to go off to college and my dad doesn't trust my 10 year old hatch anymore (even though i do). He wants to get a new car or a newer one at least. Somewhere in the 16k range. I wanted a scion but im thinking that the powerless box is going to be a broken fad in a couple of years and ill be stuck with a box. So I'm in the process of looking for a new(er) car. Something that won't give me any trouble, has relatively good gas mileage, and won't struggle going up a hill. Any opinions on what to get would be helpful. Scion?..99+ 1.8t GTI, 98+ GSR, 99+ SI... Edit..I'm not planning on dumping much money on this vehicle, maybe a little drop and some wheels but thats about it. I'll have other things to use my money for, school and a computer.
