So after kicking around the idea of trading in/selling my E92 in lieu of something better suited to haul bikes, I drove a few things and hated them all. ~35k just doesn't get you enough these days for the money, and I'm just not a hybrid person.
So, I sold my truck instead.
I'm keeping the 'Bimmer (because I love it, best car I've ever owned) and going to pick up something to replace the Taco. Awesome truck, lots of fun, but I built it for 'wheeling and ended up liking cycling a lot better.
Needs: Can take a trailer hitch, hatchback, decent wintermobile (AWD or FWD)
Nice to haves: Automatic (since I'd commute with it in the winter), folding rear seats
Right now I'm leaning towards a 2010-ish Impreza Outback sport:
The WRX only comes in M/T (so that's out) and I'd rather not deal with turbos and shit. I don't care about performance, just something around the 15-20k mark that I can beat on, drive through the winters and generally not give a fuck about.
Any other suggestions in that price range/style?
*Yes, I know the first pic is a WRX
