I daily drive a 2012 Ford Fusion, 30 mpg, and would definitely buy it all over again.

Either a Camaro Z28 or the Ecoboost Mustang... I randomly swap between the two all year around. Camaro gets 14-15 mpg.. EB mustang gets 22-24mpg on the daily drive which is all city driving. At this point with the mods they are both right around the 330-350 rwhp range but the EB has wayy more low end torque and handles great. Camaro just sounds pissed off angry fun and it has T-tops. I'd buy either one again no questions asked but right now the EB mustang has the upper hand because Turbo.

I have car ADD and haven't had a true "fun car" in a long time. I tried doing the whole race car/DD all in 1 thing but it just doesn't work.

Right now I DD a '15 Chevy volt. I love techy cars and obviously this thing doesn't disappoint. For lifetime fuel economy I'm at 173mpg, much like a sore dick you can't beat it. Would I buy one again? Well I'd have one again. It actually drives well and checks all the right boxes for features you want in a DD, but it is pretty expensive. I'd definitely lease one again, but probably not buy simply because even though nothing major never really happens with these cars, if a battery or trans went out and the warranty was expired I'd likely have to donate a kidney to pay for it.

Winter Warrior = 1979 Caprice Classic sedan
Summer Cruiser = 1989 Caprice Classic Brougham

Would definitely buy both again ... & again ... & again.

DD a 05 g35x. Gets me 18 mpg mixed driving. Love the car, hate the MPG. Some parts are cheap because of the vq35 motor in everything.

Would probably not but again. 18mpg is stupid when v8 suv can get better.

Hardly. No "hating", but rather calling it like I see it. I speak from personal VAG experience encompassing more than just my B6 S4. It's really a multitude of things and not just one single experience regarding only powertrain components.

'15 Mazda 6. Needed a cheap car quick after my 200k mile winter beater called it quits. Great gas mileage, sort of the enthusiast's version of the boring family sedans (couldn't find a manual Accord Sport).

Really itching for another car. Doesn't help that all my neighbors have a toy or two. Or three. Just on my cul-de-sac alone: Lotus Elise, M3, C6 Vette, MKIV Supra turbo, two 3000GT VR4s, RX7 with a 2jz, S4 Avant, 350Z Nismo. Like living on a Fast and Furious movie set hearing turbos and waste gates constantly.

2014 Civic EX Sedan - Hate it.
Its the ultimate incarnation of a car as an appliance. Does everything perfectly but nothing 'right'. CVT trans that sucks the soul but not the gas.

It does set the high bar for bluetooth integration though...

Audi is by far the worst in my opinion. Everything is engineered to break because they seem to put the same grade of components in the $130,000 cars as they do in the $20,000 cars. The worst horror stories you hear are generally in reference to Audis. The same can be said for BMW and Mercedes I'm sure but there are plenty of BMWs and Mercedes you could safely own out of warranty if you're a competent wrench. Any E60 sans the M5 is a pretty safe bet, the E90/ E92 3 series, apparently the mid-2000's S class mercedes are solid, especially the powertrain.

VAG as a whole has a tendency to make things as cheap as they can regardless of the brand and I say that as someone who's a huge Audi fan boy. They use cheap plastic that apparently doesn't age well. You'd be surprised at how many of the common problems with the A8's were just a result of cheap plastic. Just off the top of my head you have HVAC issues, flaps in the intake, flap actuators on the front of the intake, trunk motor gears, trunk latch gears, etc that all broke as a result of shitty plastic. I can appreciate that a feature laden high tech car is going to break down more often than a Ford however when all the stuff that's breaking is the same stuff found in that Ford and not the high tech stuff that's an issue. That's VAG.
