Puff the Magic Dragon Man, you're making it hard for me to find my next car! My F150 was nothing short of amazing. My kids were younger and I had a camper we towed everywhere and a 16' utility trailer for firewood for the winter and 4 wheelers etc, that 5.4l triton had no problem pulling. Good ride for a trick. Sold it when the kids got older and we stopped camping. I use my car now for mileage/warranty/comfort etc. it's not the best at everything except warranty but it does well. The RS is fun, but it's not what's advertised nor cheap. It's hard to justify the expenditure when a mustang or camaro are much cheaper, but fitting all into one product is difficult. Bang for the buck I give a nod to the VW. A proven platform. It's all in preference at the end, but have fun in whatever ya get! That's what we do it for!
Ken Cuenca love my Elantra GT. It's the4th Hyundai my wife and I have bought and they've been ultra reliable. First was a Accent SE (hatch) I bought to use for long distance traveling where I put 78k miles, got 37mpg (eco on with cruise control) in 3 years. Not a squeak or rattle and that gamma engine started like it did 78k miles ago. My Elantra GT is now my run about. Much more room and good fuel economy averaging 32/33 with hwy being 33/34 mpg and city 29/30. I live in southern Louisiana and except both days of winter, it gets hot. I've had these cars sit, idling for hours between waiting for kids and the a/c is cold and the engine temp is perfect. Add in the warranty and no other car touches them except the sister company, KIA.
