it's marketed at those 20 yr olds and other ppl working part time or with just enough money for a new car and want something decently exciting, but need to save money on gas and maintenance. to them, it's amazing, cuz it's what they get at that price

I'm sorry, but if I have the money, idgaf how many times my car is in the shop as long as its decently reliable. you ppl defending the 86 realize its just a huge compromise... cheap materials, low power for mpgs, etc.

how many times has that POS Audit you're standing next to been in the shop? don't lie!!! I doubt the Toyota WOK be in the shop a fraction of the the time the Audit is.

wow Adam. Have you ever heard the saying "it's more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow"?

1 Brian, then why are u here if u don't care? 2 Adam, if u can't appreciate the fact that this is a pure drivers car, that's light weight and nimble, NOT overly powerful and only meant to drive in a straight line for 250 meters then b done... Leave

lol i think i rather have a juke nismo RS 25k

I think the 86 earns some respect because it exists in a day and age where econoboxes and .5 liter triple turboed engines run rampant. I wouldn't own one, but I would much rather drive on a road full of fun cars than priuses!

@adam i agree. I dont care about a 20k car that has slow 0-60 and 1/4 times. Who cares I want to see dream cars like aventadors and 599's.

I wish they'd do something with the front end, it just looks too tame.
