Ferrari and represent yourself (while drunk) at the divorce proceedings. Make eyes at the 15 yr old girl in the second row. I guarantee the kids will never be a worry again.



Or a Land Cruiser. A Land Cruiser would probably suit you well.

Sebring was built by Mitsubishi for Chrysler using a lot of Mitsubishi parts.

(At least the early ones)

Fit.

I have no idea how, but it's magic.

Or the HRV, it's a Fit on roids.

Both can be had new in your range.

I have no idea what you should buy...but I know CarMax has a 10day return policy, so you should buy it from there.

Mercury Marauder is considered Japanese. When CAFE standards hit hard, they excluded majority foreign content cars because the big 3 were importing small cars since they didn't know how to make them (isuzu, Suzuki, Mitsubishi were all rebranded as big 3 at the time). To use this rule, Ford sourced enough components in the Crown Vic (and offshoots) offshore, making them qualify as a foreign majority vehicle, which was not included in CAFE calculations.

Thus, Marauder fits the Japanese requirement.

(the above is actually all true)

$25K will get you a 2005 STi out of the Nasioc classifieds. Or maybe a 2010 WRX

He can put the rest on a second or third credit card, then balance transfer it around to avoid interest and payments for two years.


Next answer: Ford Edge. No manual, however.

39 inches of headroom? Do you wear a helmet at all times or have undiagnosed hydrocephalus?

Also, if you put your requirements into a spreadsheet, you would realize there is basically no vehicle that meets those requirements, except maybe a Tribeca or Mazda CX9, both of which don't have manual transmissions. You could get a Forester, but that will feel like a huge step down from the Land Bruiser. Then there's the Volkswagen and Audi wagons, which aren't Japanese and probably have their respective electrical time bombs set in the not too distant future.

Or, instead of trading in the Land Cruiser, why don't you get a summer car? There's probably tons of BRZs/FR-S (or Toyota 86 whatever it's called)

Or, get the new Supra :fapingbanana:

Full_Clip would keep the Land Cruiser and get a FJ or Brocoma for real dirt situations.
