Would be cool to get a new car, but I think I'll purchase my Mazda3 when the lease is up.. to be frugal.

If I did get a new car, the new Mazda6 would be at the top of my list.

It's a great little car. Love mine with the Skyactiv + 6MT.

The new 6 is nice, but with talk of a Mazdospeed version (And they're racing one currently), I'd prefer that over the regular one.

Honestly I'm thinking of ditching the STi for a Focus ST. The only issue I have is the lack of a proper diff. The next GTi looks like a winner though.

Why on earth would I buy another car? There's only one of me, and my current car does everything well. If I could get a slightly larger fuel tank it would be perfect.

If the new Mazda 6 offered something other than the 185 HP four cylinder, that would be my next car. I just can't live without some power after having the WRX and the LGT.

Perhaps this wasn't the thread for you then.

i was pretty much locked on buying a 2013 Audi S4 next. now, after thinking about it a lot, i have decided that my next car will be without a doubt a certified used Jeep Grand Cherokee (probably the new 2014 in 6 months).

The correct answer is:

No ... But they do and they're the ones writing it off

2007 WRX LTD stage 2 wingless with fmic, rs hood and an STi 6 speed. I'll immediately do *something* so that it only has 200hp. Getting it in a week. For my son, who reads OT, so that *something* will remain undefined.

I'm craving a small four-banger four-door hatch/wagon for beater use. Maybe a Civic, I liked my old Civic.

Or, a Fiesta ST

I've wanting to get a car for a while, I just don't know what I want. Thought about Range Rover, thought about x5M, thinking about a new Cayman S or maybe a preowned 997 GTS. I like both a nice luxurious SUV and sporty/sportish/sports cars.

I'm sort of in this boat now, except I have 4 cars, and no real desire to replace any of them. I'm already out of driveway and borrowed storage space. What I buy next will be dependent on something unexpected happening to one of my existing vehicles and replacing it accordingly.

DD: 2004 STi, 146,000 miles. Still runs fine, and there's nothing that I see that is a significant enough upgrade right now to justify paying a bunch more money for.
Tow vehicle: 2006 Ford E350 van, 36,000 miles. Same as above.
Track car: 2003 Nissan 350Z, ~8000 mi (that's right, only eight thousand). I can see spending a whole bunch of money on progressive upgrades this car, but there are a lot of things I really liek about the chassis and general suspension design.
Summer beater: 1987 Porsche 944, 81,000 miles. It's not pristine, but I have so little money into it that it's difficult to justify replacing with another summer car right now.

Cuz people like stuff. And cars are cool stuff. Gotta have more stuff. And when you have too much stuff for your house, gotta buy a bigger house. Then fill the new house with stuff. It's the amercian way.

As for my next car...
Still got 1.5-2 years before I can get one Not sure what I want, but I have the go ahead from the wife to get whatever I want within our budget More than likely it'll be something used (CTS-V, Corvette, Elise, porsche...)
