Small so it should get "ok" MPG, but still utilitarian enough to haul your gear and a few of your bros if you get a 4 door version.

Plus they look pretty sweet if you put a cap on the back, like so:

I was actually wanting to buy a truck at first, but any truck i want is over 30k. I dont really like the small trucks. Thanks though =D, but yours does look sweet

6 miles will hurt a awd car? I thought about riding a bike a while back, but I would have to wake up earlier, and im always having to rush to work in the morning hahaha. I jog " havent in a couple weeks because i hurt my foot some how" , and i also work out =D. I AM READY TO GO TO THE HILL !! <3

Not mine... I just found it on google. Figured you wanted something with better mpg than a full size truck, but still enough space + seating to be useful.

Here is my whip:

You live in OK, huh? Have you tried shopping in Dallas? Just saying... my brother lives in Tulsa and I know he visits Dallas sometimes to shop for used cars. He claims that there's more selection and better pricing for pretty much anything he's looking for.

Due to the rising cost of ammo, do not expect a warning shot! Sorry for the inconvenience.

I'm particularly fond of the smell of Italian leather in AWD cars, and this is the most exciting specimen I've been in. (Yes, ahem, snooty, snooty. ) My neighbor, "believe it or not", is even more fond of it, since it resides in his garage; not mine. Hmmfff. So, we (neighbors) have all had our taste and are now tortured by its sultry growl, as it OWNS our suburban streets... It's a travesty, really. For the sake of humanity, such an example of engineering excellence needs to passed from house to house for proper testing (until it's time for a new clutch, or ...err... even an oil change, or an insurance payment that is. Then we'll gladly give it back. Yes, then we'll gladly give it back!) Damn, it fits me like a glove and produces almost as many G's as hardboot carving. I don't feel so bad now on my alpine expenditures. In any case, I would HIGHLY recommend this ride!

You should buy a GTR, blow the doors off of his car, and then tell him your car cost 50k less =D. On second thought, look into renting a LFA for a week haha. THAT CAR IS WORTH MORE THAN MY LIFE !

Ya ive been looking for out of state cars, but I am so ocd about buying anything. It takes a lot of reading and thinking for me to commit to anything. I cant even buy a pair of ear buds without researching for 5 hours. It sux being me lol...

I have another car i can drive, so its no biggie. I will eventually find something i like a lot.
