I'm going to be doing some Sea To Sky commuting for a while and our 99 Pathfinder is quite possibly the most boring vehicle on the planet and also drinks gas.
Looking to spend up to around $2500 or maybe a bit more for an old 'banger' that will be fun to drive and be somewhat economical at least. In the perfect world it'd be something 'cool' like the 86 Golf GTi that I looked at, but without a super sticky clutch, potential overheating issues, no hand brake etc….
Not being from these parts, I tend to think that all US vehicles are utterly shit, break down all the time and are impossible to send around corners at more than 40Kph. Is this unfair? ;) Probably a bit I guess. Are there any hidden gems that I could add to the list of suitable cars to look for? i.e. probably a hatchback / coupe, manual, 2.5L engine or less and something that I can take corners in a UK style? I don't really care about refinement. I have arms that are perfectly capable of winding down windows for example.
wow you are a ass
