The WRX/STi are too expensive used and have most like been abused. Toyotas are very nice. The Rav4s are cheap, get good mpg, and have lots of space.

I was thinking of that but 150 hp isn't enough. I was hoping to stay above 200 hp and torque. That leaves the WRX, Forester, and Outback in Subaru's lineup. Used WRX are very expensive their mileages...

In my experience the board is forgiving-ish. If you mess up, a spin let's say, and you land and the momentum is still making you spin expect to fall if you're not prepared to switch. But all in all...
