I think we can all come to a mutual agreement that no chick enjoys a popsicle stick.

Depends on how well you use said popsicle stick.

Why won't you look at older vehicles? My family is pretty much a Subaru family (my dad has one, my mom has one, my sister has one, my grandma has one, a few of my cousins have them, an uncle, and an aunt in Washington) and they are all extremely pleased with them and they all run great. My sisters has almost 300,000 miles on it as does my dads (though it's been broken down for a while too, lol).

But, because I am an ass hole, I'm going to suggest a 2005 Chevy Silverado ex cab 1500 with a 4.8 and just under 75K miles. Could be yours at the low price of $16,000.

He he he Good saleman I tell you, unfortunately the Silverado doesn't meet the criteria that it needs to be manual and 4 cyl. nice try. My fiance would like to buy new or close to new so that it would be a long term investment with little no repairs. Also something that perhaps she could order to her liking like I did with the Ranger

"she would never jeopardize functionality..." LOL Bro!!

That's exactly what I mean. You think, at your age, that you have any idea of what drives a woman's decisions?
If you think you know something about women, you're wrong.
Give yourself another 35 years - you will freely admit you know nothing about them and you will be proud and happy to say so.

Seriously, (no sarcasm and no joke) I wish you all the best.
