Alrigth well pretty soon my mom is probably gonna buy me a car since i need a dependable car through the rest of college. she said it would be in the 8 or 9 thousand range. I was going to try to get her to just get me a WRX, but i dont think she is gonna pay like 5 grand more for that car. so basically i want a nice car that i can go out in and it looks good, but also i want a reliable one that is decently fast as it is stock. my friend has a 01 Accord, which i like a lot. so i checked out the accords, and if i get one it will be an '02. I also checked out the 3.2TL, which are awesome too. Other than that i really haven't looked into too many others. With gas prices as they are here in Socal, the Honda V6 is gonna be aobut my limit on how much i will wanna spend on gas. anyone have any other ideas along these lines? i dont want an older car because hopefully i will end up buying anohter CRX to play around with, but i need something DEPENDABLE to drive everyday BTW the 3.2 has 225 hp, curb weight is 3461, and has a 5 spd auto. the accord has 200 hp, curb weight is 3283, and has a 4 spd auto. which one do you think will be a little faster? and as far as mods i will go with basic I/H/E, and after a couple years probably get the comptech SC. any ideas for other nice cars?
