Help choosing car Hi, I need some help deciding on a car to get maybe sometime next year or later.. ya.. its far off and im doing some real long time planning. lol. Anyway, this is a car just for me to learn how to drive a manual transmission (5 or 6 speed doesnt matter). So therefore it has to be a sporty kind of car since most cars today have auto transmission. Most likely, it wont be for me but for most whole family and it will also be maybe used since im poor. lol so i had thought of cars. I havent really added the packages or anything, only their base prices. Another thing, they are under 30 k (new prices b/c used prices vary too much). heres the list: Nissan 350z coupe $26,700 MazdaSpeed Mx-5 Miata $26,340 (probably not this one b/c it only has one row of seats but still under consideration) Mazda RX-8 $25,935 Ford Mustand coupe GT $25,570 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Rs $28,499 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII $30,699 note that these prices will probably go down next year since new models will come out. Also, I have a question about the Evo. I asked my friend whos into cars and stuff about getting it used. He advised against it b/c he said that many ppl abuse the cars and suggested a new one. Is that typically true? Right now, im kinda leaning towards the Evo since it is a sedan (for the whole family..). The 350z and the Mazdas come next. My least favorite right now is the mustang b/c i just hate their redesigned model but my friend recommended it. So anyone have any opinions or recommendations? Like on their choice of car or buying tips and stuff? Thanks!
