I'm done. Seriously done. And I was finally able to drag some requirements out of H because I kept finding cars I loved that were getting shot down for one reason or another and I'm tired of looking. So name makes and models?
MSRP must be less than $20k
Prefer a model year 2014 or newer, but 2013 is ok.
I've already rejected the following:
Honda CR-V because it's got pretty bad blind spots thanks to thick columns. Also the interior is meh.
Mazda 3 because of rear tire wear issues.
Subaru anything because they are too expensive and the CVT (continuously variable transmission) is a big no for H.
Mazda CX-3 because it's too expensive.
Anything larger than the Cross Trek/CX-3/CR-V class.
I like things with a sporty look and low profile tires.
Would really really like bluetooth capability.
Do not like large sedans.
Do not like sedans that prioritize fuel efficiency over performance (like the Nissan Note)
What am I not considering? I'm really not the biggest fan of anything made by Toyota or Chevrolet so I'll admit that I'm biased here. I also don't love Honda either...but I realize I need to keep my options open.
Oh and here's what happened to my car.
