Question 08 lancer gts or civic si or sentra spec-v

Any ideas whic car is the better deal/nicer car? I can spend up to $21K on a new car that will need to last me at least 6-7 years. I like the look and functionality of the gts but the si and the sentra are bit faster for the price. Suggestions??

Personally I hate all of them but I do think that the Civic is my choice betweem them, just because of the way it drives.

I also kinda like the way the lancer looks.

MKV GTI. It's what I'm getting when I graduate. Drive one for yourself and you'll understand why I won't even consider any other FWD car.

Without driving them, I'll take the Si, but you need to get behind the wheel of all of them. Is the Caliber SRT4 out yet? That'll be another car to look at.

Nope. But I was gonna suggest he wait to try it.

Get the Honda out of the 3. It'll have much better resale value than the others.

I'd say the Civic, but I don't have any knowledge of the other two. The Lancer has only recently made it to the UK, and the Sentra has never been here (although the Sentra is kind of like our Primera, although one of the Infinity cars has more in common with that I believe(can't remember which one, lol))

Haha didnt even think about that but he probably should as much as I hat FWD cars, Id probably actually drive an SC SS. Way underated and really quick and easy to make power with. Chevy needs an ecotec powered s2000 killer.

Civic Si easy. Same performance as sentra, but better ride and resale and reliability. Mitsu looks great but it doesnt have the power of the Si IIRC

Civic also means, every mother... has one on the block.

But....I'd take the 4 door SI, definately out of all of them. Maybe the Sentra, but that's me.
