So I'm looking to buy a new car but need a little advice. Below, I'll list what I need, what I would want, and the cars that I'm currently looking at. I can pay up to $25,000 US.
What I Need
-Fun to drive.
-I would like a smaller car but not would not be opposed to a bigger sedan. I just don't want an SUV or a truck.
-It needs to be used. I've bought enough used cars in my life.
What I Want
-A quick car. It doesn't need to be fast per say but I would like it to be peppy.
-I don't want to break the bank every time I make an insurance payment.
-I would like it to look good.
What I'm Looking At Currently
-2013 Dodge Dart.
This car is the US version of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta. It has a very nice interior and offers a lot for the price. The MPG isn't great but the driving range is very good. The car looks really nice too. It's not exactly peppy and the best transmission, the manual, isn't very good. But it handles really well, is spacious, and practical.
-2013 Ford Focus
This car is great to drive, peppy, and looks really nice. The interior is pretty nice too but it doesn't have as many options as the Dart. The MPG is ok but the driving range isn't as good as the Dart. The backseat is a joke and it isn't very spacious.
-2013 Ford Mustang (V6)
This car is great to drive, is very fast, and looks great. It isn't as practical as the other two but it isn't as impractical as one might think. The MPG is fine and the driving range is between the Focus and the Dart. The interior is nice but lacks the options of the Dart.
So that's what I'm looking at. What do the rest of you think of my picks currently? Am I over-looking something?
