sporty looking type vehicles
Well, if you want it sporty looking, just buy any Sport Compact, and attach gigantic wheels, an alluminum spoiler and a gigantic muffler. Bonus points for unpainted carbon fiber hood, lowered suspension and underbody lights.
As for the cars you mentioned, in my personal opinion, I would nix the Scion, Altima and Stang. I find all of them ugly. The Altima and Stang are low on the reliability rungs. Despite being made from Toyota engines, Scions don't have the quailty assurance of Toyota cars. I'd say replace the Altima with an Accord.
If you must have sport, some cars you may want to look into are:
Corvette (totally bucks Chevy's quality trend)
Just be warned that all these cars (and most sports cars) are going to garner higher fuel costs (both from having lower economy and from requiring premium fuel), higher insurance costs, and unless you plan on actually racing them, could essentially be construed as a waste of money.
In my opinion, you really cannot go wrong with a Honda. Toyotas are good quality cars too, but their exterior designs suck, so they look as economical as they are. Hondas have a bit of sexiness to them. The one car that I was most surprised with had to be the Honda Element. It's gas mileage isn't stellar at 21-24 (EX style with manual trans), but, it is quite a good ride, has a great turning radius, plenty of room and is rated quite highly among car sites.
This is just one of the the hundreds of sites I found the give subaru high ratings.
Subaru has an average of 138 problems per 100 vehicles, 20 more problems than the industry average.http://auto.consumer...ex.cfm/id/2231/
Value in class: 4http://auto.consumer...x.cfm/id/38235/
Value in class: 5http://auto.consumer...x.cfm/id/38799/
Value in class: 3
Compare that to any Honda Civic which will get a Value of about 8-9.
I grow rather tired of your know it all attitude.
Get over it. I know a lot and I'm not afraid to say that.
