So, I need your help, advice, and thoughts on what car to buy. My wife is giving our son her 2007 Acura TSX with 190k miles on it for school. I have a 2012 Subaru Legacy 2.5i. While I love the AWD, the car is kind of boring to drive. The Acura was a lot more fun, but the AWD will work better for my wife with her long work commute.
Anyway, I don’t want to break the bank buying a new car, but I want something sporty and “fun” to drive. I looked at the new WRX’s and drove one. They’re fast, fun, AWD, and stick, however, they’re not cheap. Additionally, I would prefer an automatic since I drive in bumper to bumper traffic for my commute. I have been looking at things like the Nissan Sentra, Ford Focus, Chevy Cruze (not a huge fan of Chevy’s though), Honda, etc. I would love to get another Acura, but I am not paying that much for a name badge again!
Last, I am looking to buy a brand new car. Also, how many miles do you think that Acura TSX will go with regular maintenance? We haven’t had one issue with it yet (knock on wood).
Any thoughts, advice would be awesome!
