The Car Quest Continues.

A Nash Auto Dealership circa 1949

The quest for a new vehicle now continues...

I might just have a private buyer for my PT Cruiser. That would be most excellent, considering I can demand a higher price than using it as a trade-in. Don't get me wrong -- I love my PT Cruiser. It's been a wonderful car that I've taken care of. A 2008 touring model with only 57K miles? That's pretty low. But, I need something with slightly more power, so it has to go. I do hate to part with it, though.

My short list of possible car choices has grown smaller. The Subaru Crosstrek, Subaru Impreza, Mazda 3 5-Door Hatchback and Mitsubishi Outlander Sport are out. They just didn't afford me any more horsepower than what I already have. The Jeep Cherokee Sport and VW Golf have risen to be my top choices.

I was quite impressed with the power of the Cherokee Sport. It has the new 9 Speed Transmission, and boy could I tell it in the short time I drove it. I am also eager for the VW Golf, but it only comes with leatherette seats. I'm worried that they might crack or pull apart over time. I would have to get a Golf GTI just to have cloth seats -- that's something I'm not opposed to for the right price.

Before I make a final decision, I still want to test drive a Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, Kia Sorenta and a Kia Sportage. Perhaps next week when I have more time. In the mean time, am I forgetting any other auto manufacturers and their products? I believe I've covered them all.
