I need help deciding between a 2017 Honda Civic Si sedan and a 2017 Volkswagen Golf GTI Sport with DSG. Any suggestions or opinions? This has been a more difficult choice than I thought

Wouldn’t it be great if Honda brought back a new s2000?


Golf gti and then check out the APR chips. Simple plug in and go! 🏎 💨


Why those 2? I suggest saving money and leasing a new car.


Well I’m paying $260/ mo for a $45k Giulia. Try to beat that on your used Honda or VW. I bet you won’t be able to.


Used to own a GTI and miss it. I vote the GTI


Test driving both tomorrow. I’ve done my homework and understand the differences between them. I think the civic would provide the actual driving experience I crave, but the GTI is the better all-rounder. If it were up to me, id buy a BRZ and call it a day, but I can’t find any I like in my price range


Good. I bet one of them will just feel right to you.

They’re within budget and provide the fun factor id want from a car. I don’t have a daily commute (even when client site), so this would be more fun backroad drives and longer trips

Hmm I think in terms of fun factor, the Golf might be a better driving experience. For reliability though - id say Honda.

Did you drive them both? Because they have very different feels.

Golf for sure. Civic Si is a ricer

Oh I will. Both are great cars. The civic just brought me more joy

Anyone have any tips for overcoming burnout? I’ve had some toxic work environments over the last 10 years and finally in a company I value with a job I feel valued in. I worked hard to climb the corporate ladder and ended up taking a down level and a slight pay cut to feel happier and I definitely do BUT I still feel the effects of burnout on the daily. I also feel guilty for not feeling more grateful for how good I have it and for lacking motivation. Any advice from others that experience this?

This isn't as exciting as my usual questions but in terms of reliability for a young woman (my daughter) would you choose a 2021 Toyota Rav4 or a 2021 Honda Accord? I need it to be able to handle hot weather, and a cross-state trip, probably around 3000 miles round trip maybe twice a year. If you think something is better than either of these drop that rec too. Thanks.

Question about paying off a car vs. financing - I'm 23 and have no debt (hence why I'm a little afraid of taking it on). I thought the best move would be to save up cash and pay off in full, so I have about $30K saved up but now I'm reading that maybe it would be better to put down a down payment and finance the car instead. Thoughts?


Is it worth it to buy a Range Rover Sport or should I lease it? Young with a good salary and looking to get a new car in the next few months. With all the stress of life and work, I figure why not

Thanks to the MD who made me aware of this bowl haha, this is my new toy :)

Don’t know if this is the right bowl but I’ll give it a shot. Does it make sense to buy a boat? I’m 23, currently renting in the DC area. I can easily afford it but don’t have a SUV or anything to haul it. It would strictly stay in the water. I want one really bad and just miss being home In the summers and out on the boat with my friends. I don’t want to make an impulse decision but man I also want my own without derailing my retirement, eventual house down payment, etc.

Not exactly a fun choice but I’m trying to decide if I want to pursue an XC90 Recharge, GV80, or a Palisade Calligraphy. I have pros and cons in the comments, but would appreciate any insight here as I’m sure many of you have made a similar decision.


Noob question - never financed a car but how long does it take from application to getting the loans to buy the car? I’m closing on a home so I want to time it perfectly with closing and pick up


Audi A6 or BMW 5 Series?


I need advice to buy a car for the first time. Single F, don't commute, so mainly for the weekend and travel, I like nice design but I also don't want to struggle with the reparations. Budget 20-30k. TIA
