    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?

    3.2 would be faster imo

    for 10k id prolly try and find a 1.8t golf, i love those damn cars and are cheap and easy to make fast and they look good.

    wrx is a good idea as well

    the Teg, Civic, Lude, and Golf idea i thought about, but the main problem is being here in San Diego it WILL get stolen, and i really dont wanna mess with that problem anymore. like i said, the project CRX will come, but with time, thats realy the only car i want for a project car.

    damn that was a lot of responses so fast

    and about the A4, i checked those out a while back, so ill go back and look at prices again. those ae ncie too

    so you're leaning to more of a reliable sedan/wagon

    if i can get a nice looking sedan, like the WRX, A4, 3.2 or whatever that would be better becasue insurance is cheaper. and yea i mainly am looking at reliability. I just checked the A4s and all the ones in my price range are over like 75k miles. i know ona honda thats all good, but what about the Audi motors?

    WRX = bad idea for gas.


    The accord gets 6-10mpg more than the WRX and can take regular/89 instead of premium/91.


    ...and why praise hell are you looking at an automatic car?


    For a car in your price range I would get a 5sp accord, 1.8t gti/jetta, nissan se-r or subaru 2.5rs.
