Shopping for a new ride...

Postby ATX_Skins » Wed Aug 08, 2012 10:38 am

I currently have an 04 CTS-V, I love this car but at 50k its starting to give me the dreaded GM electrical issues. So, I am shopping some new rides. For all of you car guys in here let me know what you think of these.

Keep in mind I am probably moving from the nice dry weather in Austin, back to NOVA for work.

C63 AMG
M3
CTS-V

or... in another direction:

Toyota Tundra
Range Rover Supercharged
Escalade

I like the C63 and M3 but the weather in the DC area is tough on a rear wheel drive vehicle.

Trucks and SUV's seem fine out here in Texas with the big lanes, but the lanes get smaller on the east coast and I'm probably doing the condo thing. I like the idea of a bigger vehicle, but I rarely ever need a truck...

CTS is beautiful..
Subaru is economical and still pretty fly depending on the model. A Wrx gets chicks and up an ice packed mountain.
If you have little use for a truck the Taco is better on gas w plenty of power but the trusty 4runner would be my vote.

Being a Jeep guy I'd say look at the grands before deciding, I love all mine. An srt8 grand Cherokee w 420 plus horsees all wheel drive and an interior just as lavish as any cadi out. P I M To the P!

I'm getting ready to buy one of these fully restored.

25 mpg on anything from regular to pure ethanol.

Stainless steel.

No oil filter. No taxes. I'm psyched.

Can you see it now? It's 6:00 am and I'm heading west on Rt. 50 at 45 mph in my stainless steel Model T with no traffic.

Or I could get a woodie. :shock:

RG3 will benefit from having a full off season to prepare and a better 'fit' at both HC and OC
