    I sold my Audi A7 when I moved from NJ back to NY. Now I ride the silver limo (8 cars a lot of people, but it gets me where I need to be). I don't really need a car in NY anyway. And if I did, Zipcar (plug) is my friend.

    GTR=not as fast as claimed, transmissions break, warranty voids if you look at it wrong.

    Agreed, but if we're dreaming then warranty doesn't matter to me - LOL

    Ok, I need some help. I'm looking at getting a new car. I'm really looking at an 09 Pontiac G5.

    I'm 26 with a family, so a complete sports car isn't an option and mileage matters as I drive 80-100 miles per day M-F.

    I've also looked at the Ford Fusion and Pontiac G6.

    I'm already ruling out the Focus (that's what I have now) and the Chevy Cobalt.

    Please provide reviews of the G5. Fusion reviews are welcome, too. Not websites (I can Google). I'm looking for personal or close friend/family experience.

    To the OP

    From what I see in the Audi forums, CPO and new RS4s are going for good prices these days, with excellent financing terms. I'm driving a 2006 B7 Audi RS4 and love that car to bits, and that's not easy considering that my previous daily driver was a modified Evo VIII MR RS built for track days, and I had an S2000 and a Porsche Boxster before that.

    I think your choices depend on a number of variables:

    1. what is your budget?
    2. fuel economy or performance?
    3. seating space - 2 seater, 5 seater, or 7-seater?
    4. pre-owned or brand new?
    5. Domestic, Japanese, or Continental? Are there known dealers who offer good workmanship, prices and support in your area?

    I was thinking about getting the B8 S4 when it comes out...but the B7 RS4 is looking pretty good.

    I have a 2005 Chevy Equinox AWD and a 2008 Corvette Convertible.

    I'd like to replace the Equinox with an Audi S5.

    Drive: 97 m3/4 technoviolet (parked 10 months out of the year) & 08 accord 4 door (daily driver)

    Want: 08 m3

    Need: an awesome single speed bike with some hed 3 carbon wheels.

    The accord has tamed me a bit and love the relative comfort it affords me compared to the stiff suspension the m. I want a bike not only for the gas saving opportunity it can bring, but to avoid traffic in general.


    p.s my first post

    If mileage matters, I suggest getting either a corolla or civic. these run along the same price as the cars mentioned above (give a couple more thousand) and have much higher mpg rating. also, japanese cars TEND to last longer than american cars...USUALLY, not always... but it's always a safe bet..
