    Default Fun car for $400 payment

    What's out there available for 48month lease, 20 or 24k/year at $400ish payment?

    I already have a golf tsi for the gf. I was looking at a base manual wrx (feeling a bit ricer) that checks in at $406. TLX is another option.

    Anything you can think of or anyone buy anything recently feel free to chime in. Keep the budget balling alive.

    Default WRX

    I have a 2015 WRX. I would suggest that it is a great car to buy (it's really fun to drive) but and a big but.....you have to live with a terrible stereo, it is very hard to drive smoothly (many people I know that have driven manuals extensively have issues with it) and the paint quality is awful on these cars. Be ready to shell out for 3M, a stereo (at least a deck and new front speakers) The other thing that kind of sucks is that it comes with summer only dunlop tires, you will have to replace those too.

    The WRX is great if you add about 3K to the price tag to cover those items. I absolutely love mine, just hate the paint and the stock stereo really.

    I was also looking at the TLX, great choice if you can do V6 and AWD for that $400 payment. It's a much more expensive car than the WRX though.

    Wrx for year round fun.

    Mustang if you want 3 seasons fun. The v6s have a bad rep, but the newer ones would be plenty of power and fun. The ecoboost would be in the 400s I think if you wanted to spend a bit more.

    I had a '12 V6, so same motor and it had lots of pickup at higher rpm, very vtec-ish... New ones have irs and 3.15 final gears and still come standard with an lsd... Rented a vert in Maui and it was great on the twisty roads... Even with the auto

    That Caddy deal is nuts. How is that payment calculated? On the website shows $700+
    Super tempting

    I'm gonna counter the Mustang idea by suggesting the new 2016 Camaro. Looks like you can get yourself into at least a 1ss (455 hp) for well inside your budget, and keep in mind these things are mopping the race track with M3s.

    $47K car, $14K off as down payment. Lease for 2 years, residual is 50%.

    I think in the other thread, you can walk away with that ATS cheaper than a fully loaded 4 cyl Accord, cash.

    As lease deal goes, I don't think anyone is gonna will beat that.

    The funny thing is, Cadillac's residual is so low, I just don't think they can move them with normal lease without knocking 30% off MSRP like this ATS.

    Shit for $299/mo maybe I should swap the Civic for an ATS You'd have to deal with CUE but it's hard to beat the price.

    What dealer is it? It's not obvious in the Kijiji ad. I might actually do this haha.

    Yes payment is lower than my wife's 2013 Fit although ours is a 4 year lease. Hard to beat that price.

    Wasn't working on mobile... But that's nuts, guess it makes sense if the ats is $300... $400/month lease (48month) gets you a $30k ford

    I think you are looking at bi-weekly?

    1ss came up as $626 monthly for 48month lease with 0 options selected for me.
