Top 5

It seems that every site, blog, or something that has made it to Digg's front page is a top 5, 10, 125 list... Now I normally hate top anything lists (When they are on 5 different pages) but this is on my site and it is a topic I enjoy so what the hell.


These are the top 5 cars that I would buy. Not the top 5 most expensive, exotic, fastest, or whatever you look for in a car. For some reason they all fall in the same class...

#5

Mini Cooper S



MSRP: $21,850
Horsepower: 172 @ 5500 Torque: 177 @ 1600 (Turbo)
Gas Mileage: 29 City / 36 Hwy
Trans: 6-Speed Manual

The go-kart handling and sheer uniqueness make up for being EXTREMELY unreliable.

#4

VW GTi



MSRP: $23,370
Horsepower: 200 @ 5100 Torque: 207 @ 1800 (Turbo)
Gas Mileage: 23 City / 32 /Hwy
Trans: 6-Speed Manual

The best built of any car on this list. But the V-Dub's are still plagued with electrical problems.

#3

Subaru Impreza WRX



MSRP: $25,495
Horsepower: 224 @ 5200 Torque: 226 @ 2800 (Turbo)
Gas Mileage: 20 City / 27 Hwy
Trans: 5-Speed Manual

The new 2008 sebring Impreza is the most expensive, but has the advantage of AWD while missing a forward gear.

#2

Volvo C30



MSRP: $23,445
Horsepower: 227 @ 5000 Torque: 236 @ 5000 (Turbo)
Gas Mileage: 19 City / 28 Hwy
Trans: 6-Speed Manual

I think this is the best looking car on the list.

#1

Mazda Speed 3



MSRP: $22,935
Horsepower: 263 @ 5500 Torque: 280 @ 3000 (Turbo)
Gas Mileage: 18 City / 26 Hwy
Trans: 6-Speed Manual

I've gone over this before. This car is so boring on the outside you would have a hard time telling this car from the basic 3's (What I want). On top of that it is so much faster... It really is no contest in my mind. However, I still would like to know what everyone thinks that frequient my blog. I would appreciate any input.
