Where are all the people who voted for 'fast sports car'? I would take a Porsche 911 Turbo, and the family can squeeze in and ride in the back in the fetal/crash position all the time. Besides, I just saved $119k.

If every car in the world is $100, every 4-door Japanese sedan gets crossed off my list, sorry. If you force me to take a 4-door, I'm taking an M5 or an RS6.

The Mazda6 has a model w/ a hatch (well, at least as of last year) It looks very similar to the sedan...you can't tell it's a hatch until your right up on top of it or someone opens it up. It surprised a lot of people at the car show.

If I had my choice of any one car in the world it would be a 2003 BMW 530i with sport and premium packages and a manual transmission... as long as I didn't have to pay for it or any repairs.

... and if my girlfriend's sister didn't get one already, I would be driving one of them and complaining about my bad fuel economy instead! She went out car shopping and put a down payment on the exact car I wanted before I even knew it! It's all for the better since I ended up getting a problem-free Accord and she needed a new A/C compressor already.

Hi All:

___It would be the Front Wheel Drive (FWD) - Ford Escape Hybrid (FEH). All the size needed for just about anything and the FE capability to make a hypermiler smile when pushed. 60 - 70 mpg around town and 40 + for an all-highway driver. Not quite as good as the Accord out on the highway but higher FE capability around town and a more utility based vehicle for everything else …

___Good Luck

___Wayne R. Gerdes

I picked other. I'd take a more upscale sporty sedan, like an Infiniti M35, Acura TL or Lexus IS350.

On the streets of New York City, there are passengers and there are drivers...the choice is yours...

Sedan...cause you can always make mods to make it faster if you want, but it's practical enough for everyday use.

If there could only be one vehicle, it would have to be an Odyssey. With two kids under two years, it is the perfect fit (not to be confused with the Honda Fit) for us.

I'd have to go with the new Lexus LS450. Fast, luxurious, roomy and reliable!

How does it go... you can have fast, cheap and reliable, but pick two 'cause you can't have all 3!
