My wife loves European cars. She also loves Sunroofs, wagons, and subdued colors. I’m considering trading the Kia for this. She said that if she has to drive a car that rides rough and feels like a go-kart, it would be a sporty, European one.

The Kia has never had any issues. Ever. If we were to make it work, I would get a beat up pickup truck for under 2 grand later this year and hope that the Mini was going to be as reliable as it is fun to drive.

Plus, brown, manual, turbo wagon.
