The Thunderbird is in the shop. It needs power steering work, oil pump work, and brake work.
I'm thinking the cost of the repairs might be more than the car is worth. I'm therefore considering my next car.
The requirements are: all wheel drive, wagon, manual transmission, sporty. That narrows it down to Subaru, Audi, and BMW. (The Dodge Magnum only does auto with AWD, Lexus IS 300 is RWD, and Volvo is decidedly un-sexy)
I am not a fan of Subaru, for no good reason. So the WRX is out.
I've decided on an Audi. Now the question is S4/A4 and new/used. If my car's dead, I might have to settle...
