Yeah, the stick kills a lot of options, so does the fact that I don't like black, and I need head room and legroom. I have heard as many bad stories about Subies as good ones but an Impreza or Outback is on my shortlist. What am I looking for, one car that can do it all!:Norton I have been somewhat spoiled by my PT. Don't laugh! The stickshift turns a blah wagon into a fairly entertaining car that can haul a lot of crap. I haven't had my backseat in the thing since the 2nd week after I bought it. I have hauled my snow blower, my FIL's rototiller, bicycles, camping gear and moved half the boxes from my house when we moved. The large opening and convenient tie downs make it very handy. Hell, I bet I could fit a Grom in the back. However it is a piece of Chrysler crap, at 133K miles it is very worn out and not worth putting any more money into it. Look, a motorcycle!
