I'm looking into getting a different daily driver but I don't know what to decide on. I want something with a decent amount of torque and is a comfortable and reliable to drive. Two door or four door, doesn't matter, must be manual transmission though. Open to all suggestions. [patriot]

Fiesta ST. Cheap, fun, 30+ mpg. I love mine. It's small and maneuverable, and lots of fun around town.

+1 on the Fiesta ST! It's a gocart with 4 doors and once you drive one you will love it.

+2

I really enjoy the Fiesta ST as a daily driver. Enough power and torque to be entertaining, handles well, fits in compact parking spots with room to spare and gets decent fuel economy.

Thanks for the suggestions but I'll have to pass on Fiesta.
CTSV's are nice but I honestly think they're overpriced for what they are.
I've been kicking the idea of getting a 11-14 5.0 for a daily but I'm still exploring other cars to see if there are any other good choices because I already have a Mustang. Now as far as budget I'm trying to stay like low/mid 20's and under.

I know of a guy in sac selling a base package 2012 5.0 black exterior and black interior with 17k miles for 21k. You already have a mustang but you can't drive it to the mall without having to worry if its going to still be there when you come back. I say a coyote for dd 16mpg/26mpg and fox to modify.

I was looking at challengers but how are dodges transmissions nowadays?

Maybe I'll head to a Ford dealership one of these days and test drive a coyote since I've never driven or even been in one. Is there any common issues?

I've been in a challenger and its feels like a boat. I bought a kona blue '11 and will be picking it up this friday. I could let you take it for a spin if your really considering a coyote.

Where'd you get it from? How much did you buy it for? If that's kool with you I'm down to take it for a short drive if I don't test drive one this weekend.

21k and private owner in LA 35k miles premium package and brembos and best off all glass roof.
That black one i mentioned was my 2nd option,the black one still has a few months of factory warranty left.
You could get a 2013-2014 but your looking at 26k+ for a low mileage one. I decided on a 2011-2012 because you can find for 18-22k with the price difference I could supercharge it.

That's a good deal then because I've been seeing them closer to 50k miles for $23k. I prefer the 11/12 front ends but I like the rear of the 13/14's so I guess either way I'll have to take what I can just gotta find the right price/miles.

Wife has a 2012 Jaguar XF with a 5.0 S/C engine. Great 4 door car. Comfortable yet fun in windy roads, quiet but halls out when you floor it. Ran a high 12 in it stock

I've owned a couple STi's... have a '16 now. I agree with your points but I don't think it would qualify as "comfortable". I'd say the ride quality is pretty firm. Also, the interiors and sound system were pretty "low rent" in the older ones.

Those things aside... they are reasonably quick, handle fantastically, and definitely a very reliable performance sedan.

I just went through the same thing and settled on a Focus ST (ST3), 2014 with 11k miles.
