I currently just have my pickup and although I am planning to get a sports car at some point in time I am thinking of getting another car in the meantime. I want something a little sporty, but nothing that will rape me on insurance. I will be living in Minnesota for at least for a couple years so I am not really interested in something rear wheel drive. Good/decent mileage and at least a little bit of utility (actual trunk) is a must. I will put my budget at $15k. First things I am thinking are maybe a Forester XT or maybe a Jetta TDi. Let me know what you guys think! Thanks
EDIT for some perspective:
1. (Car I am looking to buy now) Good mileage, good utility, sub $15k, won't rape me on insurance, good starting platform so I won't need to mod it, can handle Minnesota winters if something happens to the Taco, oil changes and tire changes only/maintenance items
2. (Sports car in the future) V8, RWD or AWD, good platform for building power, excellent handling, I'm pretty set on a Corvette... I don't want to have to choose between the taco or the sports car every day.
