lol yeah going camping the ranger is going out so i can bring the cooler, the fishing stuff, the bikes and the tent all in that 6 ft bed thats gonna cost me 5 yrs of payments lol. I could tow the subie behind me lol. I offered to test drive it for her lol but she said that would be no fun, now she really wants to finesse her stick skills . She was wondering why the Subie wasnt that great on gas (not terrible) I explained to her that its the awd system, lol i guess she doesnt care lol, she still wants it lol I should have went with the 2.3L but I could afford the 4L gas bill so why the heck not ...


As for the ford, I think its a good idea that one of us not get a ford in case the Ford customer service sucks and take longer then necessary with my truck so at least the subie will be a complete different experience.

its rated at approx 35 MPG (CND) highway and approx 27MPG city, so not great (the carolla is rated in the mids 40s i believe)

I havent read all the post but id suggest the focus. My GF just bought a '11 Focus back in November, Its actually a really nice car. plenty of room in the back seat for anybody that sits back there. trunk is huge. And its got some pretty good get up for being a 4 banger. I got the windows tinted for xmas and it made the car look real nice. Oh yea the 30+ mpg is huge

No she didnt get the SES model but i believe it is the SEL? next model down.It was a little bit cheaper. she got it in Auto. We/I drove the SES model that had the manual trans and it was pretty fun to drive, Granted im used to driving my truck soo.
