My ranking--

1. New Mazda 3?
2. Subaru
3. Honda
4. Jetta-- just not impressed with the new Jetta-- Passat is a good car, however.

I can't wait. Curious to see what the problem is.

Wayne's liking the Accord. We haven't driven it yet but we drove the diesel Jetta and the Sport Trek. But that freaking Accord is a whole lotta car for under $24,000 and the gas mileage is pretty damn good. I didn't like the Civic but the Accord is (looks) like a cross between a Caddy and a Benz compared to the Sentra.

Not knocking the Sentra but it's time to let it go and Nissan can have their 36,000 mile warranty while everyone else does at least 60 on power train.

I like the CrossTrek. Nice, I would get it in the five speed. When I went to the Subie dealer in January, I really liked it, but lost my mind , kept my 02 Civic SI hatch as the dog/beach/utility commuter, and bought a BRZ.

The Accord is nice, its a Honda, but kinda vanilla looking. You might like that

If not sporty, I like utility/practical, so if you can wait, next year there will be a Honda Fit crossover, like a mini Cross Trek. And its a Honda


I like Hondas.

I think I would stray away from the jetta diesel. The TDI is great but the new style jetta is not. Fairly cheap build quality. if its just going to be a lease it may be fine, but if buying outright, Passat or Golf would be the way to go in a VW.

That Subaru looks interesting but the power is pretty lacking in the new 2.0. Very practical though, and the all wheel drive is top notch.

The accord is a superb car.... But it is soul-less.

You will find yourself bored to death, driving with cruise control on .......You may ask yourself, am I right, am I wrong? ...You may say to yourself, my god, what have I done?
