The Civic SI was the car I wanted, but I test drove a 2016 WRX and a 2013 STI yesterday. I think I've found my car. Honestly that may change in a month or so; I won't make any rush decision as I want to give the car to my unborn child.
The resale value is higher than I thought. I've always considered Tacoma to have one of the highest resale values and the WRX is slightly better from what I found last night. I'm OK to perform preventative maintenance.
The problem with my last 2 cars. The first was a 1990 300ZX night in 2009. The first rainy day I sat in a puddle of water. The injectors went out, the wiring harness almost caught fire. Those few things cost almost $3k to replace, about the value of the car now.
My second used car was a 2002 Lexus IS300. I bought it turbocharged *facepalm* and the motor blew up within 2 weeks. I replaced the motor and it's been good to me. But minor things have broken that add up so it hasn't been a good experience. I just sold it and took a loss because seeing it gone made me so happy.
