if i had the money, i would go with a impreza wrx (sti)

awd, 4 doors, sporty, great gas mileage, and they got great consumer ratings pretty much every year.

ricey? ehh its not like you will be reving a celica with lambo doors at every stop light...

that would be my vote. but those TBSS and Silverado SS are pretty sick for a truck/SUV. one car im disappointed in are the new sions...slow... cheap looking.. gah disappointed..
