    Take your time choosing a car.
    You want something that's reliable AND fun to drive. :D

    I wouldn't mind getting one since they offer it with a manual. Would be hella fun while at the same time being cheap and fuel efficient. It's also really the only good looking car in its class imo. The Focus and Fiesta have taken wrong turns at the design table in recent years, and the Sonic is just...da fuq? Hideous.

    Yea... i'd been looking at VW's for a while.... a nice TDI Golf or Jetta with a manual trans... but they seem to just get OMF-expensive. Fiesta doesn't seem bad.... but doesn't seem great. Sonic, while it DOES seem to be a fairly good car.... to me, screams AVEO! *Gag*

    The Dart.... well.... let's just say i'm probably gonna go test drive one on Monday when the dealership is open again. Nice Dodge Dart Rallye with a 6-speed manual and 1.4L MultiAir Turbo......

    That's the one sitting at the dealer for test drives. Only one they have, and apparently not yet for sale since there's no window sticker.

    The Dodge Dart does look pretty decent, came across a video review of one the other day and its definitely comes across as a Fiat group car!

    Nice.

    The Fiesta is well made and fun to drive, but I just dislike the styling direction it's taken as of late. And the Sonic is just a worse looking Aveo. I have no idea how they managed that.

    But regardless, if I have to get a new car, the Rallye will be it.

    I doubt anyone has those. They only just started showing up as of two weeks ago, with most already instantly sold out.

    I'm sure they were quite fast given the power to weight ratio. Definitely something I want to test drive when they stop selling out immediately, lol.

    Wait, wait, people think the dart looks good?

    It looks like a fat chick sat on the hood.

    Test-drove it a week ago (Toy gt86), it's quite good, but needs more BHP and the interior is a bit off

    Haven't tested the GT86 / BRZ / FRS (how stupid is that?) yet.
    As someone who (once) drove and loved the AE86, this new "thing" seems like a cash-cow-reboot.

    here (Philippines), the allocated units for us for 2012 are all sold-out, as my friend told me. Even if i had the money, I wouldn't be able to get one this year from any local dealership.

    i envy you man, i wish we have a test-car for the 86 here. :(

    and as far as i can see, the 86/BRZ/FRS isn't about the power/speed/accel but the driving sensation and feel. true?

    +1 on the Dart, looks really awkward. Must be a restyled Bravo for the US market?

    This whole badge whoring thing is really sad =(

    Saw loads of GT86s at Goodwood. Nice looking thing, but I'd much rather have this:

    Looked fantastic, sounded lovely too!
