Overall I think that Toyota Corolla wins. It has a good pricetag, enough power for the common driver, comfort, optional wood trim (not real though), and even has the S version with ground effects, rims, and dark interior. gets great gas milage. my dad has one its good car. and lets not forget Toyota reliability

Wow, saying the Corolla is the best car made this year is like saying Roseanne Barr was the best person to ever sing the national anthem at a baseball game.

2005 Mustang.

We are talking 2005 models here right?

If not, 2006 Civic Si.

But if we are...

the 2005 Mustang gets my vote - A long awaited mustang that I'd even consider buying...once they go $6k below msrp that is (Although they are getting closer, day by day!)

Like 6000, this is all a matter of opinion. Someone could think it's stupid to pick the Mustang because it's sales dont even come close to Accord sales. People use different means on how to get the "Car of the year".

How about Skylines made in 2005?

Or does it have to be a model introduced in 2005?
Depends on what you mean by "Car of the Year"...like sports car, suv, luxury, economy, people car...

Overall, my favourite is the Vette, and the Mustang...

How about you make a poll like in "Most Excellent Member"...what were the results of that BTW?

i like the design on the new corvette. but i dont see it reasonable getting a car that powerful with gas prices as they are now. then agian if you can afford a corvette, you can afford gas for it. this is one of those questions that most people will have a different answer for

Anyone that can afford a Corvette Z06 isnt gonna bitch about gas prices going up a whole 20 cents a gallon.
