    Suggestions on a car


    I just accepted a new position. As one of the benefits I get to pick out whatever car I want fitting a couple stipulations:

    About $30K or less, 4 door, something good to entertain customers, comfortable etc

    And my own requirements: fun to drive, sporty (if i didnt have to bring customers id get a sports car, but oh well), good power, handling, good car to spend a lot of time in since it will be my office. So there it is, give me your opinions.

    I may also consider a nice suv or 4 door truck (obviously scratch the handling part), but those tend to become a little more pricey :dunno

    Have at it...

    Re: Suggestions on a car

    I'm definately a fan of the Audis, but I also really like the Subaru Legacy GT Limited. Classy, yet sporty with the WRX motor.

    I was thinking exactly that, however if your going to be seating customers in the vehicle I'd get a truck. Avalanche or Ram 1500 quad cab.

    Re: Suggestions on a car

    MMM that a4 is sexaaayy, and I hadn't even thought of it. I thought it was out of my price range. Im definitely going to check that out.

    I was also thinking ridgeline in the back of my mind, but I have my truck and its paid for which is the only reason cars are at the top of my list.

    I do lab equipment sales, so I have to drive a lot, thus the car. The sweet deal is the car is mine after 3 years, which is not a very common benfit.

    Passat diesel! Granted my not be as sexy as the A4 but will save you on gas.

    I could be biased since I own a jetta diesel.

    Another vote for the Audi 09 A4. Either that or a used CTS-V if you can swing that.

    I like how you think. If that were the case, Id go 17 on the bike! lol Unfortunately no that is not an option....i don't think. No I cant go used either. Its a high mileage type of thing so they want to start new. I would love to get a cts, but Ill need more seniority before I can work that magic, or just sell more instruments. As for truck space, I do need to carry some equipment, maybe the space of 4 or 5 desktops consoles at most, nothing an average car can't do between seats and trunk. I like everyones ideas...almost all stuff I didnt even consider! Keep em coming, but im startin to like that a4 if I can get it. anyone know a more precise release date? PMPDVL?
