    I never really thought i'd be interested in an suv/crossover thinggee...

    I was interested in the CLA until i actually saw one in person (hideous!). This thing is based on the same set up but actually has a decent looking body.

    this guy starts at 49k. a bit pricey....

    no man pedal :( though.

    lots of options... i riced it out to a nice 67k price tag :/

    It isnt a terrible looking car but I can't say that I'd like to own one.

    I've yet to see one in person, so i'm still going off pictures. I think it looks pretty good all done up with the 20's and aero pak (no spoiler though) and those recaro seats look fucking awesome

    I'd rather have an SQ5 for the money.

    why would you want a man pedal in an suv? suvs are for carrying kids and getting road head from drunk chicks. you're not exactly calling up vaughn to go drifting.

    I'd have a real hard time buying anything audi.... Their warranties suck and their cars are 50/50 on you getting a great one or a complete piece of shit that breaks every week

    You can buy a Kia. Warranty, led lights, sat-nav.

    ya know, I actually got taken off guard this morning. I was like, damn, that's a nice car as this white sedan went by.... I thought it was an a6 at first....

    nope, it was a Cadenza.

    Not my market (too luxury, not enough sport) but it's a pretty solid contender in the niche.

    I think 10-15 years from now, the koreans will have shaken off the stigma that plagued the japanesse marks in the early 70s/80s.

    It looks like it wants to be an M5 when it grows up.

    Crossover SUVs are lame any way you look at it.

    Not really. It's like a four wheel drive minivan without the suck.

    So get a wagon then. CTS-V wagon would be nice. And it can be had with a man pedal.

    Why would anyone want a "man pedal" period? There is just no reason for it anymore. Is it a small penis syndrome?

    We are buying a new car soon and one of the things it must have is a man pedal *wife's request* she drives 100+ miles a day and says driving a manual makes her a better driver.

    Good mpg
    Mid size sedan
    Manual transmission
    Not too expensive since it will get massive miles

    Our civic SI now has 165k miles on it!

    Anyways, Let's see what that leaves us with.

    Accord
    Passat
    Mazda6

    This year subaru dropped the manual from the legacy... Thanks subaru.

    We took a Mazda6 out and couldn't believe the car for the money. Currently it's on top of our list.


    BTW Brian the CLA looked awesome... Until we saw it. Fuck me, that car is ugly. Such a could have been, car.

    yup, exactly, I was STOKED for the cla. and then i saw it. Looks like a retarded sea bass. lol


    I'm not a big fan of the outside view of the new mazda6... i liked the old body style much better. it looks too.... rx8'ish? i dunno. it's curves don't do it for me.
