You might look at a used Mini Paceman or Countryman All 4. you will find many Countryman's used and CPO for 6 years 100,000 miles warrenty. I have had over 50 new cars and the Mini is the most fun car over BMW z4 Porsche Boxster and Miata. Being also tall the Mini is easy to get in and out of and big inside. If you will give up on all wheel or rear wheel drive you should look at the Mini hatch the normal one with front wheel drive. If you live in snow belt get snow tires for winter you will do very well with front drive and them. Drive a Mini and you will understand and go on facebook search for Mini you will be amazed with all the clubs and groups. Our club near Dallas is always active and we hook up with other clubs in several states. This summer Mini Takes the States is a run just for Mini to go accross the country with stops in many citys sponsored by dealers and clubs.
always used Mustangs and Camaros, much harder to get in and out of if tall and not as go cart fun as a Mini nor are the clubs as active.
