I like Crosstrek's rear end though. I hope they will do something to its front bumper for the next generation, then I might consider it as an option.

You might like its rear end but that styling is quickly becoming old. Compare it to past Subaru's and current Subaru's, and you'll quickly see how holding on to it could be bad for the brand.

I realize this is an old post, but when you're looking at the original list and then at the finalists - the only one that comes anywhere close to the list price of the Sport is the CX-5. For some of those on the list, you could buy 10 Sport's and still have change left over!


The rest of them are either so far out of the Sport's classification or are considered luxury cars. Most of them have resale value measured in tiny fractions of their initial cost after one or two years and are useless for anything but garage queens. Most are so over engineered that it's impossible to work on them without a fully staffed auto emergency room. If you were to actually buy one, forget about doing even routine things. When you have to pull the head off the engine to get to the water pump.....


I stumbled across this series of videos and, if you can put up with his voice (sort of like fingernails on a chalk board) he's got loads of info to share! His list of 10 Worst Cars and the reasons he chose them is based on 50+ years as a wrench monkey. I loved his take on trucks!


Anyway, he runs a series called 'Rev Up Your Engines' and here's a link to one of his clips - he's a blast!
