Hey Guys, looking for a new used car. Living in New England, there are certain guidelines that I am searching for. They are:

1. Must be a manual transmission car

2. Must have either four wheel or all wheel drive

3. Looking for either a sedan, coupe, hatchback car, or a sporty, small SUV

4. Would be nice if a turbo was included but not essential
5. Can be either gasoline or diesel

The reason why I had difficulty finding a car like this is the manual transmission. I have found a decline in manual transmission cars in recent years to the point where it is difficult to find a manual car. Many people in this forum know more about cars than I will ever know so I figured here would be the best place to ask about cars. Any information is appreciated greatly including if you have a car like this or know someone who has one.

Thank you so much in advance!!!

Price range woulda been nice :tongue: But heres my top picks for that type of list.

- BMW X3 (I think it comes in a full manuel but I know its got the Semi-auto)

- Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel (semi-auto, its shiftable so IDK if thats good enough)

- Mitsubishi Lancer (same situ. as the X3, dunno if its got a full manuel but I know its got a semi)

- BMW 3 or 5 series w/ Xdrive.

K I'll throw some years in there.

2004-2005 X3

Diesel GC is out but a V8 from 06-07 could be had.

Probably somethin like an 06 EVO

Maybe a little older on the 3 or the 5, 04-05 maybe?

What, nobody has mentioned Subaru? Their cars would fit the OP's needs to a 'T', particularly the Legacy and Impreza.
For that money you could get a newer one. I especially like the 6 cyl engines, although some models used a turbo 4 cyl in the past.

Yes, let's all buy Jeep Grand Cherokees. Then we can either catch on fire from exploding gas tanks, roll over when turning because of the stupid top-heavy design that is meant for military use not for driving on roads, and we can all go broke filling up our gas tanks every 300 Kms.

My 2 cents is 1) Subaru Legacy (Outback if you want more ground clearance), 2) Mazdaspeed6 (turbo with 6-speed manual), or 3) Hyundai Santa Fe or Tucson - I know the base models had stick shifts (poor ones), might be able to get them AWD not sure. Not sure if you could find one in your price but a 2006 Audi A3 Quattro is a nice little car, or the even more recent VW Tiguan, using the 2.0T engine from the GTI.

Yea cause a great snow vehicle that gets 20mpg designed for light off roading and has decent on road performance (good for an SUV) was just a terrible idea.

Seriously, I know you hate the Grand Cherokee with a passion but its a good SUV, get over it
