    Subaru Impreza 99 and another Subaru, Outback 05.
    The 05 is the baby mobile since it's newer/safer, who ever is taking our little one somewhere will take that, or when we all go out together.
    The Impreza, my wife generally uses to get to work and the airport (she travels a lot for work), or I'll use to run errands if leaving her and the baby at home.

    We like them both, no payments on either.
    Also, living in Colorado, I believe you may be required by law to own at least one Subaru

    (photos not my actual cars, since one is at the airport right now, and the other is aaalllll the way down stairs)

    2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser

    A good bit of mods and weighs in over 1,000 pounds more than stock. Gas mileage is horrible. 12 lights that point foward lol. Actually the breakdown are two stock headlamps, 2 foul weather driving, 2 fog lights, 2 lamps that point slightly forward but to the sides (3 way switch for turning on with the roof rack lights or manually), and 4x 9" HID lights (from vehicles we had in Iraq). 1 lamp that points toward the rear (backup or always on).

    12000 lb winch with synthetic line and wireless remote.

    Steel armor underneathe, rock rails, etc etc...

    Horrible gas mileage and ready to get a motorcycle or something else (12.5 to 13.5 mpg).

    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    Nice cars everyone!

    I drive a 2009 Ford Focus SES. I like it a lot, especially the stereo system. Gas mileage is great too. I get over 30 MPG and I accelerate quickly from almost every stop. It seems to be a good car overall.

    I also drive a 2011 Chevy Cruze with a 1.8 Liter engine. I haven't driven the 1.4 Liter Turbo, although the 1.8 seems to have enough power for me.

    I like the new Hyundai Accent, but after adding automatic transmission the price was too close to the Chevy Cruze, so I didn't think it was worth it. The Hyundai Accent is a good price if you just take the base model, but I don't see myself driving a car with manual transmission.

    yeah thats about the normal rate i dropped close to 3k i think the actually total in just parts was like 2807..or some shit then plus what i spent at the machine shop which was i think close to 350..which is yes hella cheap but the work that was done was def worth more than what i paid. my only problem now is figuring how to tune the ecu for everything ive done, ill probably tow it over to bigfoot speed & custom and let them deal with it lol....
